The Sacred India Book

LORD'S LASSES: A playful wind tugs at the habits and saris of giggling nuns in Goa as the monsoon hits the west coast

Consumerism and spirituality are not on a collision course in India — they are fellow travellers. Here, the appetite for all things modern and material is blessed by the gods. So, a new car is driven straight to the temple and devotees think nothing of booking their darshan tickets online.

Camera in hand, Amit Pasricha trekked across the country following the holy thread that binds it together. Taken in panorama format which, he says, is inspired by the miniature tradition, the photographs pull the viewer into the frame — into the dark, sooty sanctum of a temple and the ritualistic elegance of a Zoroastrian ceremony.

TOI-Crest gives you a sneak peak into the Delhi lensman’s ‘The Sacred India Book’.
