About the CD

The film explores the life and times of Raja Deen Dayal who revolutionalized photography in India through his meticulous work. Deen Dayal was trained as an engineer. At 20, he was chief estimator and draughtsman with the PWD, and began working with the camera. He received the title Raja from the Nizam of Hyderabad and the royal warrant of appointment from Queen Victoria. Sir Henry Daly, the British agent in Central India, assigned him to cover the Prince of Wales’s visit in 1875. He worked with large format bellows, Dallmeyer lenses and dry plates, printed photographs on POP (Papers) and gold toned them for permanence. He set up a flourishing firm with studios at Secunderabad which cotered exclusively to women. The firm employed fifty people, including German studio operators. He toured the countryside by bullock and rail. He extensively photographed archaeological sites, architectural monuments, including palaces and forts, places of worship and the landscape, and acted as the architectural photographer for Sir Lepel Griffin, the British agent in Central India.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
