Portraits from Orchha, Madhya Pradesh

Happy Makar Sankranti/ Pongal / Bihu / Maghi/ Uttarayan / Khichdi to all you lovely people!

On this festival day, I bring to you some portraits and street moments from the amazingly gorgeous hidden village and yesteryear Bundlekhand kingdom of Orchha. I hope they add some color and joy to your festivities for they sure did blow my mind away when I was ushering in my new year.

All eyes glued on to the mobile phone! Italian, Sadhu baba and puppy!

Local market scene at Orchha, Madhya Pradesh

Local vegetable market right behind Raja Ram mandir. This is a great place for street action and people photography especially during the early morning hours when the light is good and the market is busy.

A golgappa moment from Orchha, Madhya Pradesh

The famous Golgappa wala. One of my favourite all time street snacks and must experience in most north and east Indian villages.

The sadhu who got snapped while asking for money, Orchha, Madhya Pradesh

This colourfully decked Sadhu baba spotted my big lens from a distance and from there itself he started asking for money. This shot captures precisely that moment.
