awakenings – BODHGAYA

The journey of a buddhist monk through Gaya. I too fascinated to take up this assignment in 2009. I work for the book within the limited time. I too had a doubt that how I may complete the shoots for the book, but day and night I worked for the images keep wandering and shooting. Too trilled about the place and at the same time excited about the cult. They all welcomed me with my cameras and madness. The places are ( inside premises) are so peaceful will give way to enlightenment.  I  photographed the places around  Bodhgaya in 2009-2010.  The monasteries ,temples, houses, pathways, streets, markets, people, monks, pilgrims, tourists all what ever encountered with me I shot.  Finally the book come out in 2010 itself with 252 plates hard bound copy with lots of images.
