Program 18
Speaker: Malabika Roy -“The Ancient City of Varanasi – A Photographer’s Paradise”

Malabika will share what she saw through her lens during visits to one of the world’s most ancient and religious cities, Varanasi, taking us through unforgettable moments, such as witnessing the sunrise at the holy river of Ganges, looking at pilgrims in colourful attire conducting holy rituals, and the Burning Ghats, where the deceased are cremated with the hope of the soul achieving salvation - the eternal peace! Perhaps most spectacular, she will share images of the Aarti Ceremony performed in the evening in honour of the river Ganges.
 
She will also offer suggestions on photographic equipment, best time of the year to visit once it’s safe to do so, and other tips she’s gathered through her extensive travel experiences.
 
A retired teacher by profession, Malabika Roy, EFIAP, EFIP, BPSA, PPSA, LRPS, AICS, APSNJ, is an aspiring photo artist. She has participated in many international salons and has achieved a considerable number of acceptances and multiple awards. Her work has been exhibited in a few exhibitions, local newspapers, and also in PSA Journals.
 
Her interest in photography is varied and includes Landscapes, People, Travel, Nature, Wildlife and the Macro world. She aspires to give deeper meaning to the art of photography and believes that photography connects us to the real world in a unique way.

She comes highly recommended by PSA.
