As the technology is growing very rapidly, our culture is lacking behind somewhere. Nowadays, children know about the new gadgets in the market, about new machinery and robotics but they don’t know much about their culture, the history behind the beliefs of people, the traditions and rituals the India follows. This is a transitional era, this is the phase in which we can regain our lost cultural ethics so to promote the civilization of our beautiful India, this magnificent Photography event has been framed.
