the famous old age photo of Bhagavan info required
« on: September 02, 2014, 06:37:44 PM »
Dear devotees

The famous photo of our beloved Maharishee with white beard and white hair & quite different from other photos is what is the most famous photo of our Maharishee.

(I mean that photo which sri Atmavichar sir has i his Id Label). 

Can someone throw light on when this photo was taken?  Though that photo is very beautiful, the message it conveys is totally universal and it acts as a starting point to ponder more into Maharishee's life.

Regards,
Krishna

Dear Krishnan,

This was done by one Wellis, a Englishman.  This is called Wellis Bust.   This became famous even while Sri
Bhagavan was in mortal coil.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Krishnan,

To correct Sri Subramanian, it is called the Welling Bust. I am not sure if the actual photographer was one G. G. Welling of Bangalore or that was just the name of the studio.

Will try to find out.

Dear Ravi  and others,

Yes. He is Welling and the photograph of Sri Bhagavan, bust size, is called Welling Bust.  I stand corrected.

Arunachala Siva.
