Photographer's Note

There are numerous conflicts going on all around the world. Whatever the reasons are.
Is there any valuable reason to justify a war, and the crimes that go with? How can a war be a "holy" one? With so many atrocities: murders, rapes, never ending suffering...

The new millennium began with much of the world consumed in armed conflict or cultivating an uncertain peace. Algeria, Angola, Burma, China, Colombia, Georgia, Russia, Nepal, Korea, Palestine/Israel, Ivory Coast, Pakistan, Nepal, Laos, Peru, Thiland, Turkey, Somalia, Spain, Yemen, Uzbeksistan and United States to name a few countries all over the globe are currently concerned.

Even India, my country.
I feel the whole nation is at war. Kashmir, Assam, Naxal, Maoist to name a few big issues. Apart from it; there are numerous conflicts going on in small to medium scale.

When will humans become reasonable, and able to live together in peace?

This holy month of Ramadan, is, more than ever, an occasion to pray for peace in the world. I wish you all peace, harmony and happy times with family and friends.

A man, his face turned with concern towards the Holy Ka'aba just minutes before the Azan. (The azan is the call for prayer.)

Thanks for Visiting
