Photos by Kristian Bertel. The photo of this contemplative man, was taken at a street intersection. With his drained face, he scouts the surrounding scenery, in a look emptied of emotion.

 



Udaipur, better known as the City of Lakes, was founded in 1559 by Maharana Udaipur and is hemmed in by the lush hills of the Aravalis. Each person has a functional task in this bustling city. The spicy smells from the numerous street kitchens are roaming the senses.

Diwali
Udapur is known for its holy festivals. Deepawali or Diwali, the most pan-Indian of all Hindu festivals, is a festival of lights symbolising the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness. The word 'Deepawali' literally means rows of clay lamps, the so-called 'diyas'.
