1. Time Magazine, 1960: "To Hindus, one of the holiest places in the universe is the city of Allahabad in northern India. It is holy because it is one of the four spots where the urn of immortality dripped its nectar in the struggle between the gods and the demons. And it is also holy because it marks the confluence of three sacred rivers—the muddy Ganges, the blue Jumna and the invisible Sarasvati, which is supposed to flow underground."

    Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu pilgrimage of faith in which Hindus gather at a sacred river for a bath in the river. It is held every third year at one of the four places by rotation: Haridwar, Allahabad (Prayag), Nasik and Ujjain. Thus the Kumbh Mela is held at each of these four places every twelfth year. Maha Kumbh Mela is held only at Prayag, every 144 years.

    The major event of the festival is ritual bathing at the banks of the river in whichever town it is being held that is, Ganga in Haridwar, Godavari in Nasik, Kshipra in Ujjain and Sangam in Allahabad. Hindus of all caste and creed come from every nook and corner of the country.

    "KUMBH"-a short video on Maha Kumbh 2013 was shot on the Paush Snan day (27th January 2013) at the Mela. Read our travel essay and check out the photo-album on the same only at http://www.etherealcolours.com/project/the-kumbh-experience/

  2. Skateboarding is not something you see everyday on Indian streets. With not many avenues for skateboarding yet, this tricky sport depends all on an individuals effort and love for the sport.

    Skateboarding can be your most easily available passport to thrill. Just the board under your feet and a balance of your body, and there you are wheezing past the streets in all glory.

    Meet Adnan and Zubair, teenagers who have began living their skateboarding dreams on the streets of Hyderabad and honing their skills to become master skateboarders someday.

  3. Joy paints itself on everything, as the Holi hues spread across Braj, India. Though a widely celebrated festival throughout the country, Holi celebrations are unmatched here, spanning upto 10 days. The air is alive with abir and gulal, folk songs from the bards and happiness.

    Come to Braj on Holi, and get sketched in the colors of life.

  4. I travelled to the Khasi Hills of Meghalaya in back in 2012. At that time, it was monsoon and here I was in wettest region on the earth. It was a world completely different from the one I live in. Not only was it green all around but there was also an exemplary amalgamation of the true beauty that nature has to offer and human lives. I then knew that I will come back and keep coming back here.

    Last month, I got a chance to go there again and live a few days in some of the most remote places within the Khasi Hills. When you are out there in the open, the rulebook of society becomes irrelevant and you inch closer to self discovery.

  5. Life throws us all into situations where we can either sink or rise and Sonia is a champion who is flying high. In the last few days, I have been looking to work on some stories within Delhi. One day, a good friend told me that I should meet Sonia. When I did meet and asked her about her story, I was blown away by the confidence she wears. What’s further more interesting is that she was not always like this. Watch this film to know her more.

    If you know someone around you who has an interesting story to tell, please do mention in the comments below, send a direct message or mail on contact@etherealcolurs.com. I would love to shoot with him/her.

    Special thanks to: Shubha Menon, Archit Chandra, Shalu Duggal and Abhishek Saha.
