And we wanted to know your story. So we came up with the Brunch Readers’ Photography Special. Wondering how these pictures got here? Here’s what happened:

The Theme
Our association with you is a very Sunday-to-Sunday affair and to know you best, we decided to ask you to interpret your Sunday. And that’s how ‘Sunday’ became the theme.

The Entries
We made announcements asking for entries on Facebook, Twitter and in the magazine, and hundreds of photographs poured in. We spent our days looking at pictures of champis, walks on the beach, the cutest pets ever, the first rays of the morning sun and countless cups of coffee.

We shortlisted 150 photographs (it wasn’t easy) and then Hindustan Times National Photo
Editor Gurinder Osan picked the top 10. He laboured over them for days and selected the crème-de-la-crème. We got a crash course on what makes a photo good or bad.
So that’s how they made it to the top 10. But there were some photographs that we instantly loved and couldn’t ignore. So we decided to give them a spread here because they deserve every inch of it. Dear Reader, thank you so much for your overwhelming response! It made each of us smile several times a day. For those who never sent any, we hope you still enjoy the issue. The photos are beautiful!

PS: For photos that almost made it, go to or check out our albums on
