After sharing with us his video tribute to Nepal short after the horrific events of this Spring, Aurélien Chantrenne is back with this time an extraordinary journey in India. Let this journey begin towards incredibely welcoming people.

I’m off the trails looking for some human contact. My pack on my back and my camera steady, I’m ready.
My goal : trying to capture the incredible cultural wealth of a country populated with more than one billion individuals : India.
So I jumped in to get lost in the scenery, I’ve followed crowds, I’ve learned to understand them and I’ve lived day to day with Indians.
First stop Varansi to learn more about the Sacred Ganges, the ablutions,the baths, the cremations.

Then The Taj Mahal, to understand the power of love and passion, a power that gave birth to an architectural jewel.

And at last a trip to the land of the maharajas : the Rajasthan. Here each kilometer is an history book by itself.  Each city has its fortress or its palaces. Each stone is a reminder of peace and war.

I already kew India, but everytime I end up completly immersed in its beauty, hypnotised and feeling at home. And when an Indian invits you to share a Chai, East and West mix finally to become one.
