This month we are pleased to bring you this beautiful photo shoot by Andrew Adams featuring our latest Man of the Month John from Kerala, India. Photographed in historic Fort Kochi.
Here’s a few words from our September Man of the Month John…
Let me introduce myself. I’m John Kaipallil from Pathanamthitta. A small district in Kerala. I’m an Engineer by Profession. Modeling was not there even in my wildest of dreams. But I was a Gym freak and wanted to built my body huge. After my college days I was thinking what next, when I accidentally found that there was an audition happening for Kochi International Fashion Week. So I just thought of giving it a try, and I went for the audition. It was a different world where all the boys and girls were well groomed and physically fit. I was impressed and somehow wanted to get selected. First round I cleared and then second was a bare body round and I hit the ramp. The judges told me you’ll only get selected if you reduce your weight and waist. It was thirty-six for me and they asked me to reduce it to thirty-two, and that too in one month. But I said I will do it. I took the train to my home and from the very next morning I started my diet and workout and in one month I did it. The happiest day was when I again went to Kochi and met the model coordinator there. I was selected and from there my modeling career began.
I just want to tell all upcoming models be consistent on where you have to reach. This is an industry that can destroy you if you let it. If you have a dream focus and follow, surely success will be yours.
I’m so happy that I have been selected as “Man of the Month” for Men of India. Mr. Andrew Adams I really love his Photography and appreciate his amazing personality, his play with the camera.. I have no words. Thanks everyone and to Men of India for giving me this opportunity be a part of this.
Thanks and Stay blessed!
