India – photo appetizer

I have just returned from a magnificent trip throughout India! The country has so much to offer to anyone with open eyes: from the ecstasy of Holi festival to the grief of hardworking children in the mines of Dhanbad, from the imposing beauty of Taj Mahal to the disappearing tribal people of Konyak in Nagaland, from Kumbh Mela festival to the slums of Kolkata. Here are some quickly selected photographs – more to come along with stories – so stay tuned!
