Tribute 1
Brendan C. Pereira

My Dad who from his humble beginnings became one of the legends of Advertising in India, as one of the premier Creative Directors of his era.

He achieved a great deal, but to me, his most creditable achievement was his co-founding of CHAITRA Advertising (now LEO BURNETT) in 1972. His creative direction took the agency to one of the top 5 agencies in India, before he quit in 1983.

He has written his memoirs about his Life in Advertising. A book called ‘Changing Faces’.

Over the years, while he was busy “Advertising”, it was my mother Therese who took on the burden of our education and upbringing.

I am grateful for all they have done for me and dedicate this space on my web-site to their book.

Dad has written the book, but it is truly their life in Advertising.

Changing Face swas released on March 5th, 1999.

Two Online versions of the book are available at this site. Both are in the Adobe PDF format and are available as WinZip archives.

Tribute 2
Late Wilas Bhende
One of the best photographers in India during the 70’s & 80’s. His premature death in 1990 was a great loss to the industry.

Wilas helped me in my initial selection of equipment and with his advice.

Here is just a sample of his work.
