Dates : 17th-2oth Nov 2021.

Embark on an unforgettable expedition to photograph the spectacular Dev Deepawali festival in Varanasi. Led by Vineet and Rohit Vohra.

Varanasi is the only place on Earth where Diwali is celebrated twice. Dev Deepawali (or Dev Diwali) is a festival celebrated 15 days after Diwali to commemorate the victory of Lord Shiva over the demon Tripurasur.

On this day, thousands of devotees take a holy bath (Kartik Snan) in the Ganges, and the 88 ghats in Varanasi are decorated with millions of Diyas (earthern lamps) in the evening.

Nearly 100,000 pilgrims visit the riverfront to watch the river aglitter with lamps while the Ganga Aarti (holy ritual) is being performed by 21 young Brahmin priests.

Come join us in Varanasi and and capture decisive moments that you will savour for a lifetime.

We just finished a 5 day long contest on the theme “stripes” in collaboration with Chumbak, India’s leading fashion and home decor brand. Members were asked to post their shots based on that theme on Facebook and Instagram.

It’s always fun to see members come up with outstanding photographs on weekly themes. Stripes seems to interest street photographers quiet a bit as we saw a rise in the number of entries. A total of 1576 images were posted for the weekly challenge and it only made the task of the curators harder. (we do enjoy it though)

Here is set of images that made the cut.
