Pictures are one of the supreme mediums of taking us back to history. Memories, however bleak, get rejuvenated as soon as our eyes look at a picture with which they are associated.

Time is said to be fluid. And rightly so. As soon as we see a picture, every single memory treasured by the picture gets reminisced so vividly, that the moment feels to have just passed by. 

When it comes to historic moments, they are best captured in frames. Human memory is hazy, and span is limited. But photographs bring us right back to where it all started. Now unless we have the anywhere-door at our disposal, we will have to use our imagination to travel back to those beautiful times when India’s historic moments were being created.

Without further ado, I bring to you some of the rare unseen pictures from Indian history.
