Every year between October and March, thousands of seagulls migrate 10,000km from Siberia to Delhi. Locals come to feed them, believing it is good karma. This image shows one of them, Mr Ramnath, rowing across the river Yamuna near the Red Fort at sunset. It was taken by Saurabh Narang, who lives nearby and says this has become one of his favourite places to visit in his home town. “After years of travelling to distant places, this was my first visit to Yamuna Ghat. It left me wonderstruck.”
