My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

After Kangra, I further traveled down towards Nangal and made made another stop at Jwala Ji temple, another of the holy places in Indian culture. Famous for it's unexplained flames burning through centuries, this holy place has seen even the great Mughal emperor, Akbar, walk barefoot for almost 550 km to come and pay his homage. I took this shot at the havan-kund, which is in the premises of the main temple. While waiting for the smoke in the havan to intensify, i noticed this child come and very religiously do the usual practice of offering prasad at the havan-kund. This is one of the many pictures i took of him and never in all those clicks he looked at me, nor did the sound of the camera distract him. My journey ended here as I moved towards Nangal for the wedding with some great memories and even better shots :)
