Kheerganga: Wings of the Galaxy 

His photographs are being exhibited at India International Centre, Lodhi Road, till July 8. “It was in Korakundah, while visiting a friend that I chanced upon a sky that left me mesmerised. It wasn’t my first time looking at the night sky but inadvertently, there I was, in the right place at the right time, witnessing the Milky Way for the very first time, glowing bright on a new moon night,” he says.

Virim: Pathway through plantations

Cyril has been travelling to many places in North India which include Kheerganga, Rasol, Kasol, Ladakh and Mussoorie and clicked some breath-taking pictures. “If we are unable to see the stars in the sky today, it is largely due to light pollution. A night sky in all its glory should neither be rare nor extraordinary but is hidden because of the illumination because of the atmosphere from our urban lights,” says Cyril, 26-year-old boy from Dehradun.
