India has been under lockdown due to COVID-19 since March 25 and everyone is affected by it. There is, especially, a large chunk of professionals, belonging to the outdoors, who are facing this setback with utmost patience and spiritedness. One of those is the nature and wildlife photographer, Tapan Sheth, who cannot wait for the lockdown to be over so that he can go back to the forests, to Mother Nature, and start clicking wildlife again!
Tapan is into clicking images of the natural surroundings and its inherent wildlife and since the lockdown has been invoked, he feels that the entertainment world is the one severely affected by it. Resident of Rajkot in Gujarat, Tapan has also been staying indoors for most of his days, which is in total contrast to how he used to spend all his time in the forests, obviously for work. He is now at home, having put all his assignments and projects on hold, due to the Corona virus pandemic.
He says, “I had many safari tours scheduled for my photography projects. Half of them got postponed and half of them got cancelled. The entertainment industry, in general, will incur major losses. I had also planned my visit to many national parks and wildlife sanctuaries, but I doubt it will happen anytime soon. Many other events of the artists have also been called off due to this pandemic.”
Some of the exceptional clicks of Tapan include his photographs of Asiatic Lion, leopards, vultures, peacocks and, of course, our national animal, tiger. Besides, he is also the owner of a reputed web design company, Sakshi Infoway Pvt. Ltd., based in Rajkot. Speaking about his ‘office hours’, Tapan gets nostalgic while saying, “I miss being in the forests surrounded by the wildlife creatures and the pleasant atmosphere. This phase too shall pass. The unity of humankind will rise above everything and I hope everything will fall back into its place.”
However, he is aware that staying indoors is the only right thing to do if we want to defeat this pandemic. In fact, Tapan has humbly requested everyone to keep indoors and follow the government’s instructions to handle the disease.
We hope every Indian listens to him and stays home & stays safe!
