    On a lazy eve i took this frame in unknown lane at Varanasi. A surreal light effect i got when i was walking through this lane. perhaps he was returning from his job and allowed me to take this frame on request. I took at least 5 frame out of which this one is cleared most.

    Wow...really great. There is so much here with so little. I really love the light and the larger darker spaces prompt intrigue and mystery. I also love the incorporation of our means of travel and commuting into telling the larger story of change...nicely done.
