Gurugram (Haryana) [India], Dec 9 (ANI): 'Glimpses of Gurgaon', a photobook representing India's Millennial City for which various professional and amateur photographers contributed, was recently released.

At the launch, held at Golden Tulip Suites, H.E. Daniel Carmon, Ambassador of Israel, was the guest of honour.

Based on similar photobooks of cities and countries around the world, 'Glimpses of Gurgaon' provides a particular view of Gurgaon or Gurugram, as it is now officially known.

This compilation of images, all taken within the borders of the city, highlights Gurugram as a new or modern India with images of skyscrapers, the metro, beautiful condominiums, and modern roads.

Simultaneously, the book includes images that reflect typical Indian village life. It is the juxtaposition of these contrasting photos that conveys how both the old and new co-exist, nearly harmoniously, in Gurgaon.

This project, with all proceeds being given to several local NGOs, was spearheaded by Gurugram-based photographer and Israeli citizen Maayan Gutgold, who has lived in the NCR for the past ten years.

Maayan pulled together a team of women, mostly expatriates from diverse countries, to collaborate on the project: Peggy Bhohi (Germany), Marta Catalinas (Spain), Crystal Lunsford (United States), and Priyanka Mehan (India). (ANI)
