Birk, Punjab : A Photowalk

There are trips of exploration, trips full of adventure and then those we take to revisit our roots. So this was a trip to Birk, close to Phagwara, near our ancestral village Kahma. A quiet village in Punjab where our forefathers spent the sliver years of their life.

Visiting Birk, 107km from Amritsar, Punjab, made us feel that the idea of quietly nestled villages in India still exists.

Birk definitely made for a photo walk!
