Candid Camera: Fatehpur Sikri Water Tank
Location Fatehpur Sikri, Agra
Moving Image “The important thing for me was to capture that boy against the white patch on the wall, which would make him stand out. This involves anticipation and split-second timing. When Sikri has been mentioned in the Mahabharatha as Saik, it was defined as a region surrounded by water. It is interesting to know that ironically Akbar had once abandoned this city in 1585 because of scarcity of water.”
