COLOURS OF THE NIGHT: Bisisthal, Switzerland: On a trip to Switzerland, I fell in love with starry night skies. I visited Bisisthal, a beautiful village in the Swiss Alps. Surrounded by mountains, it felt like a whole different world. While capturing this photo, I was reminded of just how small humans are, compared to the universe out there.

BETWEEN THE LINES: Pushkar, Rajasthan: This picture was taken at the Pushkar Camel Fair 2019, an annual festival held in the town of Pushkar, Rajasthan. The fair celebrates camels, cattle and horse trade . This was my first time attending the festival, and it was absolutely incredible. This happens to be the first picture I clicked at the fair. I was astonished to see so many camels and was excited to capture them. As I was framing my first shot, I noticed a man sitting with a yellow turban and decided that he would be my subject. I framed him through the legs of the camels, hoping to get a different composition, and was extremely pleased with the result.

SUNSET SAIL: Krishnanagar, West Bengal: This picture was taken in Krishnanagar, West Bengal, on the banks of Jalangi river. It was a regular sunset, on a summer day. The man in the picture was fishing along with a few others. While there is nothing exceptional about this scene – it’s common to see these fishermen go about their day – its simplicity is what makes it mesmerising.
