Rajasthan is a northern Indian state bordering Pakistan. Its palaces and forts are reminders of the many kingdoms that historically vied for the region. In its capital, Jaipur (the "Pink City"), are the 18th-century City Palace and Hawa Mahal, a former cloister for royal women, fronted by a 5-story pink-sandstone screen.

Out of all the metaphors I could use on you Bombay, I choose to call you a four-walled classroom, where everyday you've millions of people coming in to you - just like I did - learning how to survive and getting a bit closer to their dreams while growing up a little in the process.
Some move further away, some choose to stay but you stand where you are, welcoming everyone with open arms even though the spaces keep getting smaller and now there are three people per seat.
Bombay, they say experience is the best teacher and you ought to be one of my best experiences.
Swipe for more mountain peaks photos of Kinner Kailash.
Next day our plan is to go Chitkul and suicide point but because of unexpected snowfall at night it's very much risky to go there from bike.
We decide to stay near traffic light(Reckong peo-market) and enjoy the mesmerizing view of gigantic Kinner Kailash range.
Meanwhile when we are coming down I take some peak Timelapses and Photos.
This is the second time I visit Kalpa and enjoy the surrounding mountains view to the fullest.
Next day we return back home.
Sunrise glow, Varanasi... ... My first introduction to Varanasi was from Michael Ackerman's "End Time City", a collection of his photographs taken with what seems to be a Holga camera with black and white film. Ackerman's images of Varanasi (then Benaras) were raw, confronting, visceral. When I visited Varanasi for the first time 11 years ago, I remember thinking about Ackerman's words on Varanasi and the impact the city had on him. For me, it was very similar, but also an intensely spiritual experience. I'm not an overly-religious person, but I sensed something there, an energy just behind the veil of the visible. It moved me beyond what words can describe.⠀
This is what Ackerman has to say about his experience in Varanasi: "Almost every night that I spent in Benares I would go to sleep very, very desperate to wake up and have another chance to absorb what was there and connect with it. The city of Benares is an intense combination of fairy tale and nightmare. It is a very holy place to people and every day they come there by the hundreds, or thousands. It’s a never ending pilgrimage. At the same time it’s such a dark place where death is ever present. There’s just this poetic chaos to it, a beautiful urgency." The Varanasi we visited this year has, in some respects, changed because of mass tourism, but I could still sense that intensity, the "poetic chaos" that Ackerman describes, there, on the less-visited ghats, in the twisting alleyways away from the tourist hubs, in the red-rimmed gazes of Sadhus and the twisting columns of smoke rising from funeral pyres.⠀
If you want to understand life, death and the endlessness of the human condition as a photographer, you must spend time in Varanasi.⠀
