Obituary: Krishna Kumar Marfatia and Vipul Verma


God is the supreme controller of this world. Birth and demise are determined by him. We mourn deeply on the heavenly departure of our beloved ones, but cannot stop this natural phenomenon. Two of our beloved artists left us recently. One was Shri Krishna Kumar Marfatia of Mumbai and another was Shri Vipul Verma of Almora. We will always remember them for their valuable contribution in the field of art photography.

Krishna Kumar Marfatia

Born on 30 December, 1927, Krishna Kumar Marfatia was an ace photographer. Mr. Marfatia had passion for photography since the early days of his life. He was a good pictorial photographer. He was deeply inclined towards photographing portraits and landscapes. Besides, he was an enthusiastic traveller. He had visited numerous places of India and abroad. He photographed a number of scenic places as a true travel photographer. The pictures clicked by him fascinate the art lovers at first sight and work as a source of knowledge to the beginners. 
He had profound leaning towards education. He remained at key position in several educational institutions. He departed to the heavenly abode on 17 July 2016 in his native city, Mumbai. He will always be remembered for his precious contribution in the field of photography and education.

Vipul Verma

Born on 28 October, 1996 in Almora (Uttarakhand) Vipul Verma was an emerging photo-artist. He was an avid traveller and a competent tracker. He had travelled Uttarakhand State extensively in a short phase of time. Vipul had clicked stunning pictures during his trips to different pretty places of his State. The main field of his interest was landscape photography. Besides, he loved to click star trails. Vipul had established himself as a fine photographer at a very young age. He left us on 14 July, 2016. He will always remain in our memories for his polite nature and mastery over photography.
