Cows in India are considered holy and feeding them is believed to cut down sins and get good results .. Hence outside many hindu temples we find people sitting with cows so that visitors can feed them grasses and laddus ..
Most whether it is Temples or Church or Mosque, beggars are found at all religious places ..
|The Lady with a smile|
When I went to Khandala vegetable market to shoot, most sabziwalas out there were irritated, angry and shouting.. This lady caught my eyes because of her smile ..
It's funny the way this man is sleeping .. It teaches us that to sleep all we need is "sleep" and not a comfortable bed :)

I waited for almost 45 minutes to capture this shot. This is one of my most favorite clicks.

This is life. What seems to be weak proves to be stronger, and what seems to be stronger is always dependent. What we see is not always the reality.
I'm not too fond of insects and animals. But this was definitely interesting and I wanted to experiment with my new 200 mm lenses ;)

Mother and two kids. I just loved the way these kids were sharing their food.

|The Daatun Morning|
Varanasi, Kashi or Benaras.. The city of Gods.. The most cultural city of India. Luckily it's my birth place and I get to visit it almost every year. In last 24 years I have seen no major change in that city.. the food, the cows on every street, the rikshawals, the paanwalas, the gobar (cow dung), 5 am Ganga Snaan (Ganga Bath) and the morning aartis (prayers). This city has maintained its culture. This city is a photographer's paradise.
Everyday early in the morning, people of Varanasi (also known as Benaras and Kashi) take bath in river Ganga and make an offering to the Sun. Ganga in India is personified as a goddess and bathing in it is believed to remit sins and facilitate liberation from the cycle of life and death (MUKTI). Gangajal is considered pious and people carry it with them to different cities and countries.
Never seen a man thinner than him.
