Postcards from our April 2016 issue

AJMER, RAJASTHAN: Sands of time: I captured this photograph at the Pushkar camel fair in Rajasthan. After a whole day of portrait photography, I went three kilometres away by evening to look for something different. That was when I saw these camels being herded back home. The warmth from the setting sun and the dust being raised by their feet add to the image

KALAMPAKA, GREECE: The hills are alive: I took this picture on my trip to Meteora in the Kalampaka region in Greece. What makes Meteora so special are the monasteries atop the rock pillars. I took this shot of the stunning Meteora Valley from a vantage point, the view made prettier by the setting sun
Photographer: Kalampaka, Greece by Arka Dutta
RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL: Colour me pretty: Lapa in Rio is an interesting neighbourhood, with its cobblestoned streets and graffiti-ed walls. I took this photo while wandering its streets. The quaint-looking cars parked beside the colourful buildings form a side of Rio that is rarely ever showcased
