A colorful ladies clothing store. These stores are usually found in giant plazas that consist of a maze of similar looking shops most of them are the size of a cupboard but don’t underestimate the size of their merchandise, I’ve literally seen people sit there for hours sifting through all the material one by one hoping to find that one piece they may have in mind.

#3picturesfromindia | Situated at Badi Choupad, Pink City of Jaipur, Hawa Mahal or Palace of Winds was built in 1799 by Maharajah Sawai Pratap Singh. Its unique five-story exterior is akin to the honeycomb of a beehive with its 953 small windows called jharokhas decorated with intricate latticework. The original intent of the lattice design was to allow royal ladies to observe everyday life and festivals celebrated in the street below without being seen, since they had to obey the strict rules of "purdah", which forbade them from appearing in public without face coverings.

He’ll be showing us the famous Pushkar Camel Festival which takes place in Pushkar, Rajasthan, India.

Pushkar Mela is one of world’s largest camel festival. Apart from the trading of livestock, it is an important pilgrimage season for Hindus to the Pushkar lake. Pushkar fair has also become a significant tourist attraction for domestic and international travelers, given the cooler season, the abundance of colorful cultural themes. Cultural events and competitions include dances, tug of war between women teams as well as men teams, the "matka phod", "longest moustache" competition, "bridal competition", camel races and others.

100 days ago, photographer, writer & activist, Shahidul Alam was arrested at his home in Dhaka in violation of his right to freedom of expression.

We are Shahidul Alam. Shahidul Alam is us. 
The world demands his immediate and unconditional release.

Now, to honour the massive city that I call home:
Dear Karachi,
The salt in your air feels like sugar when it hits my face. Your coastal breeze sounds like music when it meets the trees and causes their leaves to dance chaotically. 
Karachi, you put me in enchantment. The way you manage to walk out of failure every time a disaster pulls you into a pit of oblivion amazes me. The way your people make do despite your problems inspires me. 
When I see your diversity, when I see a small act of kindness on random streets and when I see people smiling with optimism, I am filled with a renewed sense of hope - hope that comforts me that no matter what happens, the city will always prevail.
