Muthupandi is a studious and grounded young man.  He shared that he used to be very angry after losing his father and brother.  Before his mother also passed away, she told him that it does no good to be angry, instead let it make you stronger. Finding great comfort and encouragement in his Russ Home family, he has been able to apply her wisdom to focusing on doing well in school where he took a special liking to science.  His ambition is to become an electrical engineer.  Muthupandi's images have a certain and tangible grace to them in both the composition and the subject matter.  He seems to have an emotional connection to his photographs. His images have a wonderful lyricism to them.
