The Divine Voyage

The frame I captured relates to a ritual of worshipping the eternal source of energy that is the organic source of light in our universe. The ritual is called Chhath Puja, where countless pilgrims gather near the edge of any natural water source as holy gesture of offering prayer to the sun. The place transformed into a playfield of colours and light.
