Magic on the Yamuna River

Despite the Yamuna River not being able to maintain a thriving ecosystem, hundreds of birds still flock on to the place when winter comes, because of their tendency or habit to stay or return to a certain area. But it’s not only birds that come to this place. Humans also come here, too, and they go here to feed the winged creatures.

Because the tributary attracts such an influx of avians, it’s also a site of religiosity and legend. People travel to the water to feed the birds, an act thought to bring good karma, and disperse offerings for their loved ones who’ve died.

These ritualistic acts have been captured on surreal photos by Delhi-based photographer Sankar Sridhar. Check out the photos over at Colossal.
