A Barodian’s photograph of Ahmedabad’s own Acropolis – the Sarkhej Roza – will be used by Gujarat Tourism to promote the historical monument. Officials managing the digital media for Tourism Corporation of Gujarat Ltd chose the photograph posted on a social networking site for the purpose.
A city-based realtor and one of the promoters of a leading architecture firm Vijay Agrawal had clicked some photographs of Sarkhej Roza during a visit there. Agrawal had put these on a page dedicated to his photographs on a social networking site in March. Officials came across these on the site and sought permission from Agrawal to use them.
“I had been to the monument with my son, who is a student at CEPT University, and had some work there. I decided to utilize the time he spent in the office there to click photographs of the monument and posted these on photography page on the site,” Agrawal said.
