A few of my favourite…




I have to admit, I was blown away by most of the entries that were submitted for The World Beyond... through your lens competition.

I have already shared and blogged about the winning entry. Here are some of my other favourites:

Notice how beautifully the handmade rangolis have been placed – it seems as though the motif on the book is continuing onto the rangoli.


I bet you didn’t know that The World Beyond has its own personal little model, did ya? ;)


There is a scene in the book where Rachael is taking care of the sick and wounded at night. And for some reason, this beautiful picture conjures up that scene for me.


And this one here, has set my book ablaze. Love the play of sunlight and shadows.


Here’s an artist reaching out for my book.


The piano plays an important role in the book and has a special place in Rachael’s and Salim’s hearts. Hence this picture holds a special place in my heart :)



Now what is so special about this one, you ask. Take a look at what’s written above the book. That’s right – Western Railway. That’s the reason. There’s something deeply satisfying in the knowledge that someone somewhere was reading your book in the train :)

    Oh wow! Had not not been paying attention to details. Thanks for pointing them out! Did not realize the connections between the pictures and the book. Maybe next time you have such a competition, you could ask the person to add a phrase below the entry. Would help someone like me to appreciate their work better :P
    Again- Many congrats to all the entries. It is evident a lot of thought went behind each picture and I think I love them all for it :)

      Thanks Anjali. Yes, kudos to all of them for putting in so much thought and effort.

      And I did ask them to give their pictures captions if they wished to. If you see some of the pictures in the album on facebook, some of them do have captions/ descriptions :)

    These pictures are so good. Very hard to chose between them. They all are doing full justice to the book. I really love the piano one and the lamp one.
