#366Strangers – Portraits of 366 Strangers

“The beginning of every New Year brings with it the opportunity and the excuse to make a new start.” Knowingly or Unknowingly, Capturing the innocence of strangers, I have met on my travels is one of my favorite things to do all the times. While going through my travel photos one day, I realized how many strangers, I have captured through my lenses.

Kolkata To Sundarbans – A Journey Through Basanti Road

I still remembered, at the time, when we were started towards Sundarbans, one of the members from coordinating team us already told us “Abhi bahot majja aane wala hai aap logo ko” (Now, you guys are going to have a fun). Indeed, this journey was an unique experience (As good as equal to Bumper ride).  Most of the times, our coordinators were telling us real incidents, the villagers stories and how they spotted the Royal Bengal tigers and other wildlife in forest. For me , it was the most rustic route I have ever been to and the interesting part was I witnessed urban and rural life in a single day. As we were moving away from the …
