Kanchan Pamnani is a solicitor who specializes in civil and corporate matters. The interest in photography was evident when she bought her first camera while still in school however the interest had to lie in abeyance during the period of some vision, low vision and no vision. 

   

“The interest in photography has been rekindled when a hope was held out that the ‘No Visions’ had adequate vision to develop an interest into a hobby.”
