On the Streets of Vrindavan

It was an unique experience to be in a small town where people wake up with the name of ‘Radha-Krishna’, where Rickshaw driver won’t honk if you are in the middle of his way but would instead say ‘Radhe-Radhe’. In fact, all the greeting from Good-Morning to Good Night have been replaced by ‘Radhe-Radhe’. It was difficult for me to practice it in a two day trip but I had to adapt to it as I was on the streets to capture the ambience of Holi in Vrindavan. Instead of asking ‘If I can photograph you’,I would say “Radhe-Radhe” with a broad smile and yeah, It worked except at one or two situations like this.

I was on this trip on my own, to experience the famous Holi of Vrindavan; I visited all the temples where Holi Celebrations take place and indeed, I came back with a very calm mind and a much happier soul. Here is my experience in pictures-
