Phodographer Chinmoy Majumdar in Calcutta, India, 2013

Veteran phoDOGrapher Chinmoy Majumdar, seen above, participated in Calcutta marathon and in his eloquent words:

I brought along the mascot of Dog Meets World to share the idea of photo diplomacy and how it helps our underprivileged children by giving their childhood memories back. The concept of photo diplomacy attracted our city communities much as it is a concept which involves human sentiment. It was memorable and wonderful morning as I had taken 10 kilometer dream run and expressed a photo diplomacy speech to various participants. I was able to help my city communities understand about the need of diplomacy in this way. A well known Indian actor, Jisshu Sengupta, participated and helped me to promote the concept of diplomacy. I was able to let our city communities understand the cause we are fighting for and people were having very positive attitude towards Dog Meets World as a vehicle to share human sentiment and exchange love and affirmation.

What a great day for Foto to join the event to help give underprivileged girls a fair chance to pursue their dreams!
