Photo: From India

Photographer: Jalal Singh

Location: India


"What a great aerial shot. What is beautiful about Indian culture besides their traditional colours, food and various religious events, is that it is celebrated everyday by the people. It is a part of who they are and they hold on to it." - Lilia


Photo: Students of Varanasi

Photographer: Atanu Chakraborthy

Location: Varanasi, India


"The colour scheme of beige, white and blue makes this photo stand out from the rest. Varanasi is a city of historic importance not just to India but to the larger world. Incorporating this in the photo boasts its historic and cultural importance."- Rumaisa
