Book Description

From the Jacket

For centuries travelers and poets have written about India. Her endless variety and mysterious fascinations. But such is the magic of this country, such her vibrant colours and richness of heritage, that words alone do not do her justice. In ENCHANTING INDIA photographer Rupinder Khullar has captured some of this essence through a series of images that are stunning, powerful and deeply moving.

Through 19 photo-essays dealing with a wide range of themes, from Hinduism to the Himalayas, from cities such as Kolkata and Mumbai to the splendours of wildlife, from the architectural tradition to the romantic palaces of Rajasthan, from the artistic expression of crafts to the natural beauties of the coasts, he conjures up image that both astonish and delight the spirit of India caught in the camera's eye.
