India is special, I mean, she is so unique in her own way that someone who visits her for the first time will totally be bowled over by her crazyness !

From the ‘newspaper wala’ (newspaper vendor) at the traffic lights, to the matrix defeating electricity wires, only India can survive in its own mess.

India is organized uniquely in the chaos and that’s what makes her special!

And there are some fun moments there in, check them out!

  1. 55. Messages are received best when they come from our Gods. Received was misspelled and grammar was wrong.

  2. Nice pictures! The 3D painting was painted by an American 3D artist Tracy Lee Stum at VIT University. She was invited for the college culturals, Riviera in 2011. The road it was painted on is within the college campus.

  3. Great attempt but it would be nice if could also bring out the beauty and uniqueness of the North-East states since they are often ignored

  4. One of the best image galleries I have come across. Will place it in the same league as any of the galleries of The Big Picture. Going to share it on my social networks as well.
    But I would still like to point out that when the theme was unique pictures from India, including 6-7 pictures of temples seems out of place. 1 or 2 pictures of temples would have given the idea that we have temples with architecture worth visiting the place for. The remaining spots could have been allotted to more deserving unique aspects of India. Just my two cents on an otherwise splendid collection!

  5. An excellent attempt to glimpse… to unseal the Essence of our wonderful nation to the world…

    Of course there are many many many more photographs that remain to have been a part .

    But this very attempt is a beautiful beginning… and complete in itself

    My best wishes once again for the artistic attempt !!!

  6. Amazing set of photographs! Just wanted to point out however, that ‘No.3’ has been repeated and the total count is 65. Minor technicalities aside, good work!

  7. Not sure what Subhendu is talking about? I grew up watching the huge republic day parade that rolls through rajpath on tv.great work Mani, you got all right dude.

  8. So glad to see the satellite image appropriately captioned. The Beware of Tigers pic is awesome! Do you happen to know which Park/Sanctuary/Reserve it is from?

  9. This is really good!!!! Makes me Proud to be an Indian!!!
    One thing is missing!!!!
    Photos of our Brave Soldiers guarding Siachin Glacier (the world’s coldest Battlefield). Hats off to Indian Armed Forces. Jai Hind.

  10. Mani, appreciate your love for the country, but confusing Republic Day with Independence Day betrays your lack of understanding of the country, too….
