GET TO KNOW SUGAM SINGH
LEX: You have a really immaculate Instagram feed, what does it take for you to create and manage that?
SUGAM: I try to find unique angles. I always want to do something which no one has done. I try my best to make my pictures standout. So for me, it’s the urge to do something different and my passion towards photography.
LEX: Social media is often known to create pressure on young people and users on a daily basis. How do you view your relationship with platforms such as Instagram and Snapchat?
SUGAM: I feel it’s not the case with me. Social media is a nice platform for sharing your work. I have got very nice responses from my followers. They say I inspire them to be creative and that encourages me to do even better. So, I can say that I have a very healthy relationship with such platforms.
LEX: What are some of the best moments you have from using Instagram?
SUGAM: Well the first thing is, I get to interact with so many like-minded people via Instagram and they all are very supportive. I even got to be a part of a small community of bloggers, vloggers, photographers and instagrammers in Nepal. I have been able to reach a very large audience with that help. It has also opened a lot of doors of opportunities for me. I landed my first modelling assignment from Instagram. These days a lot of brands are approaching me to promote their products.
LEX: How important are looks for you when it comes to finding a partner?
SUGAM: What I believe, is that when you fall in love with someone, face is one factor but there are so many other factors too. It is not absolutely necessary for a person to be good-looking to fall in love. Me, personally I get impressed by the personality rather than looks.
