FACING FAITH, Bodh Gaya, Bihar : I wouldn’t call myself religious. I don’t know who God really is. I certainly don't know where this all-knowing being resides. But, I often encounter this divine entity. To me, God can be found in the faces of children. Watching these young monks chant prayers during Budh Purnima allowed me to catch a glimpse of heaven.

SEEING RED Chitkul, Himachal Pradesh: Chitkul looks like a painting, with its red grass, the lovely Baspa River, snowcapped mountains and little wooden houses. Located in the remotest area of Himachal Pradesh, Chitkul is the last inhabited village on the Indian border shared with Tibet. The house in the picture is a storehouse, used to store food for winters. Due to its steep mountainous terrain and harsh climatic conditions, this region is quite remote. This is probably a boon in disguise, as the region’s spectacular beauty is still safe from the influx of tourists.

CALL OF THE WILD, Masai Mara, Kenya: This lion was trying to outdo another lion with a show of strength – most of the time, conflicts are resolved through acts of intimidation and an actual fight is a rare occurrence. Judging by the expression on this alpha male’s face, it’s safe to say that he got his message across.
