royalty was his way of life but Deen Dayal left a varied heritage
of pictures pertaining to the common man - families, events, gatherings,
religious, cultural, festive, all these were covered by him in
From a group of thugs in the studio to wrestlers on the street,
from a flower bedecked bridegroom to a tribal woman with a child,
the images conjure up a vivid picture of life in British India.
Character, costumes, jewellery, headgear - the remarkable emphasis
strikes the viewer.
