A mention of India’s northeast instinctively brings to mind the pristine beauty of its landscapes, its fascinating valley and hill tribes, and the vibrancy of their cultures. In that, we probably overlook the usual life that goes about which has a beauty and aesthetics of its own. My photo essay “Northeast India: Ordinary Realities of an Exotic Land” is an ongoing series to observe and express the subtle beauty and the everyday existence of this land. It is an attempt to perceive their usual life, their faith, their struggle, their happiness, their loneliness and their priceless moments through this photo series. The diversity of its people, automatically, shines through.
