About Manav
Since childhood, Preenja has had the passion for photography. He exhibited his first collection of pictures at the age of 13 and since then there has been no looking back for him. This is his fourth exhibition, which was thrown open to public yesterday. But camera is not his only passion as he is also a squash player. He is the Haryana State Team Squash Captain, for the under 19 Indian Team.
