Varanasi in Uttar Pradesh is one of the oldest living cities in the world and one of the seven holiest places in india.
The whole city is fascinated by ancient architecture, graffiti , colourful narrow lanes and most important several ghats where one can find several activities. For these reasons Varanasi is always favourite for any Street and Travel Photographer.  Pilgrims from different places of the world come to explore Varanasi throughout the year.

Varanasi in a very colourful city that is a placenta for any kind of art form. People come here to get salvation. All the alleys of this old city is associated with thousands of myths.

I heard that dream has no colour, no distraction. Varanasi is as beautiful as dream. So let us discover this colourful city in a monochromatic flavor.

(1992), I’m a Kolkata Based Freelance Photographer and blogger. I love to capture every little emotion through my lens. The ever flowing stream of human emotions have had always moved me from inside. For me, raw emotions are much alluring than any other power or construct. I believe that every frame is not just a painting; it always conveys a story- Stories of emotions. I completed my graduation from Department of Pharmaceutical Technology, Jadavpur University and then I tried to build my career in Pharmaceutical Corporate Sector. Soon I realized that it was not my cup of Tea and from the year 2016 I stepped into the world of Photography. For me Photography is not only a hobby or Passion, It’s a part of Politics… Its Mirror of Human life and their Emotions.
