  2. ERR Says:

    Congrats to winners! And a nice way to remember, black and white, wizard TSS…..

  3. MA Deviah Says:

    Really happy to see Gopi on the list. I remember some great black and white news photos that he took when he was my colleague in the Indian Express. Gopi is a great guy and I am so happy for him. Also happy to see Regret Iyer whose many photos I published in the features section. Regret was a name he gave himself following the dozens of regrets he got before his photos finally began to get published. Another unassuming personality.
