Women in colorful saris offer prayers to the Gods.

Women in colourful saris light candles, chant prayers to the Gods, and offer vegetables and marigold flowers in celebration of Dev Deepawali. The intense colours and religious fervor of the photo capture my time there perfectly - full of striking visuals, buzzing sounds, culture and life.
