Rupinder says : Most tourists see monuments by day whereas I try to photograph the landmarks of India by night also. This shows the monument in a different light and makes it look interesting. Some interesting pictures in this exhibition are Golden Temple by golden night light, illuminated Brindavan gardens, Rashtrapati Bhawan glowing on Republic Day, Khajuraho Temple, Victoria Memorial reflected in pond, Madurai tank float festival, ethereal illuminated Mysore Palace and Udaipur Lake Palace. I also keep my eyes open for unusual visuals like, interior of a palace, lone woman meditating amongst nature, women in colourful sarees in front of Taj Mahal, lone Buddhist monk walking up steps of Nalanda, unusual jewellery, green and white leaves, cactus flowers, eight people on one camel and many more wonderful pictures of incredible India.
