40 Must See India Photography: Colours and Culture


Going through the Smashing Magazine Edition of the India special photography series, I thought it would not be a crime copying the idea and creating a similar post. After all I am an Indian and I have seen enough of it to introduce before my readers. India for centuries have been believed to be the land of fakirs lying on nail beds, street magicians and snake charmers. But I have never been able to witness any of these so called 'common' sites in my entire life. Here are the colors and culture of India that makes it all too attractive and important to me. Celebrate.

Lets start the journey
 



















The Sikh fervor
 
























Village hut















Holy Waters
 














Buddha Smiles Here















Roof top Clothes line: NGC





















































More than Indian by Steve McCurry (must visit)


















Kite Eye View of India: BBC
















A narrow view: Symbol Photography














































Rock fort: NGC




























Kathakali Trainees: NGC


















Burnt with Colors





















The Himalayan Adventure: Thanks to my friend Shiyas Bashardeen



















Riding the fort



















Virgin Island: Andaman
 















An Elephantine Bath: Kerala











 






Chattrapati Sivaji at Night

















Varadarajasamy Temple























Juma Masjid Delhi: Voted as the third most beautiful
















Lamayuru Gompa: Above the skies
















An Indian Wedding
















India Incredibly ours





















The Munnar Hills: The southern abodes

















Kerala Fishing Trip

















Diwali: The Festival of Lights



















Chinese Fishing Nets at Kochi
 
















Chirrapunji: The monsoon heartland
















The Lotus Temple
















Cricket: The most popular religion here
















A Temple Shrine















And what without the Taj























































Though I am not at all satisfied with the number of photos, its high time to stop here. Surely continuing as another series. Do check out the National Geographic Channel India photography page.
