There are 365 days in a year; that's 365 chances for you to make a DIFFERENCE.

Artist Statement

All around the world there are different kinds of differences. But all the differences came into existence due to the differences in culture. My photo explores embracing of Indian culture by the people from other countries like United States, Britain, China, Norway, Denmark, etc.

It also explores how people in this particular Indian culture live and interact. This photograph was taken in a small town in India called Jodhpur, Rajasthan. This village is untouched by modernity and anyone who goes here can enjoy authentic Indian culture. Each person in this photo has a story to tell, both the outsiders and locals. Differences like these cannot be erased; they can only be embraced.
