This sweet girl named Zohab I met near Pretoria Street,Kolkata,was dancing in her mood in an alley of North Kolkata . The time she found me coming with a camera she ran into her house and after so many request she agreed to let me take her picture,but the sad part is after a small conversation with her,her uncle/father (I don’t know) came out and protested as usually the people from this religion do specially in Kolkata. He said to leave that place immediately and even threatened to beat. Feel so silly how they are trying to spread the secularism while being a part of a country like India. Incredible India._DSC8105


They name it religious!


They call it religious,wearing hizab or the cap always,but the religion must be named after humanity , wearing hizab or cap and then taking up the guns or bomb shells doesn’t make them religious,if u living in India then try to respect the country at least where u r born n brought up,don’t ask it to be part of Pakistan,if you wanna join do join without any doubt but don’t dream about parting the Kashmir.It’s a warning from the Indians,don’t ever dream about it.

Lathmar Holi in Nandagaon Temple, Uttar Pradesh, India: Part Three

Lathmar Holi in Nandagaon Temple, Uttar Pradesh, India: Part Three

Wonderful moments 🙂


Earlier this month I travelled to Nandagaon from Mathura to shoot the Holi celebrations that this small town is famous for. After the throwing of paint and powder at the Radha temple the Shepherds from neighbouring Barsana gather with shields waiting to be beaten by gopis (shepherdesses) from Nandagaon, who gather in the streets with Lathis (long staffs), quite a scene!
