I am a passionate & a serious photographer who loves to capture nature, landscape, wildlife (incl macro), architecture & cityscape. For me photography is one of the best ways to capture a moment which will neither reoccur naturally nor can it be recreated by us artificially. Through my photography, I showcase the colourful nature and wildlife which we are blessed with. To protect our nature, one of the first steps is to make people aware of what we have today and my photographs are focused more on this.Over the years many of which have won both National and International awards in Salon/Exhibitions and other contests. Some of my work has been featured in National Geographic and a few other magazines & newspapers. In March 2020, one of my favourite photographs is published as a cover page of a Religion Textbook "Religion Matters" by W W Norton publication, with 99k copies of prints rights. This book is written by Stephen Prothero.
Statement: Hampi was the capital of the Vijayanagara Empire in the 14th century, so it's around 600 years old. It was a prosperous, wealthy and grand city near the Tungabhadra River, with numerous temples, farms and trading markets. By 1500 CE, it was the world's second-largest medieval-era city and probably India's richest at that time, attracting traders from Persia and Portugal. The Vijayanagara Empire was defeated and its capital was conquered, pillaged and destroyed by sultanate armies in 1565, after which Hampi remained in ruins.
