Life Sooner or later we must realize there is no station, no one place to arrive at once and for all.  The true joy of life is the trip. India
by Siddharth Setia
The Hindu festival of Holi, also called the Festival of Colors, is celebrated with much enthusiasm. It marks the arrival of spring and the bright colors represent energy, life and joy. This exuberant festival is associated with the immortal love of Lord Krishna and Radha, and hence, Holi is spread over in Nandgaon-Barsana-Goverdhan-Vrindavan & Mathura.- the cities with which Lord Krishna shared a deep affiliation. Location: Banke Bihari, Vrindavan, India.

Monster’s are Real.  It’s hard to believe that we live in a world in which monsters are truly real, not just something hidden within the imagination of a child. There are no words to express this hideous crime "Rape" that our country faces in realizing that girls, in their innocence, could fall victim to such hate. Location: Bathinda, Punjab, India.

Make your heart richer not your pocket. It takes more guts to say, ‘I care’ than ‘I don’t care’. Start caring from today for yourself and others. (In the photo: The girl takes care of not only her brother but also her little puppy by keeping it warm from the cold. Streets of Delhi, India.)

Happiness is a state of mind. One that can't be bought, can't be sold, can't be bargained for. Happiness often comes and goes as quick as a gust of wind. But before long, one wants to be eternally happy again. In solitude lies contentment. But often, the real worth of mirth is found in togetherness. Four sisters growing up on the streets of Gurgaon find their greatest joy in each other. Originally from Rajasthan, they came to the city with their parents. The family earns a living by selling idols. And the sisters find time to have their share of fun. Happiness is like their second skin and they really can't have enough of sharing a laugh with one another. Location: Gurgaon, India.
