[My father] died in 2004. After that, I always thought about how I could prove my gratefulness to him for my medical profession and photographic career. Then this is the idea that came to my mind to memorize my father’s lifetime throughout the world through photography. This will be a challenge for me to fulfill my dream successfully. All my family members and friends are helping me to succeed in his memory. I always pray to God to give me the courage and strength to make it a successful event. So, I request every photographer from every corner of the World to help me by sending their beautiful images to make my dream successful.
