Diwali 2010

Diwali is a loud, spiritual and colorful festival. It is what Christmas is for Christians. The biggest religious celebration and the time of the year when families reunite at their homes. If it had not been for the upcoming exams, the campus would have been deserted. But this year most students stayed, which allowed us to experience this unique Indian holiday with all its colours, tastes and activities.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe I am in India. When exam stress is high and I am spending nights studying boring scripts, I could well be anywhere else in the world. That is why I like taking pictures. They show what I have long gotten used to. Single moments and impressions, may they be beautiful, interesting, shocking or just utterly strange. They catch what is going on around me, not letting loose even when daily routine comes out on top. I can well leave it to these pictures to tell the story. This time the story of historic Hampi and its people.
