Welcome to my photo-blog

Dear friends,

First of all, I would like to thank you for visiting my photo-blog. I am Suvayu, a native Calcuttan, traveler, jungle-lover and photographer by heart. Traveling to new places, meeting new people and knowing their life style, culture, heritage always rejuvenates me. But what enthralls me most is when I see myself in the lap of mother nature accompanied by magnificent wildlife. My photo-blog is just a humble attempt to showcase some of my best images along with my experience.

Best….
