On the rise: India has entered a new state of existence – spirited, spunky and raring to go. It’s where the winds of change blow strongest – but not at the risk of uprooting traditions.

Bharat Sikka regularly photographs some of the world’s most remote, exotic and beautiful places. His "Encounter" photo stories of India and Vietnam (for Bergdorf Goodman) are exercises in perception, and a testament to the soulfulness his lens elicits from his subjects.
