Manish Khattry 

Mystical city 'Kashi' is known as a city of Fairs and Festivals ... Moreso, for "celebrating 9 Festivals in 7 days..." (सात वार - नौ त्योहार)... some of which are Unique only to the city and Lakhs of people attend these Fairs and Festivals that are popularly known as "Lakkha Mela"... I found these very exciting, alluring and intriguing and started clicking and documenting them for years ... It all happened by chance or maybe it was destined to happen that WE MET... Priyoneel ji, Vikas ji, Vivek ji and Me... Like Minds... Like Hearts and Voila! it worked and so magnificently too... Multitalented Priyoneel ji has penned down with much passion about the subject... this young man has immense possibilities as a great Writer... Vikas ji and Vivek ji... The Dynamic Duo... the budding entrepreneurs creating history... They have been instrumental in giving the thought a shape... Their undying efforts for this one is highly appreciable and admirable... Seek blessings and wishes for the very First publication of us on this colorful subject... and also for others in the pipeline with the same team!

Don't know when this journey as a photographer got manifested to a 'Mission'... a mission to preserve the 'present' of my mystical city Banaras.. that is 'older than history.. older than traditions..' Felt delighted at a call from "Leica" - an international supreme brand that maintains a legendary standard of quality with each hand-crafted body & lens even now...
They proposed to use their 'gear' for one of my Projects and sent me this Gorgeous piece. Completely in awe of the amazing results and take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude to the "Team Leica"... #LeicaCamera #LeicaIndia #Leica #LeicacameraIndia
