"the annual annokut festival is the beginning of the vikram year and is celebrated the day after diwali. annokut (sanskrit: anna [grain] denoting food; kut [mountain] indicating abundance) heralds a new beginning, with the harvesting of the crop that was planted during the monsoon. the new crop is cut and offered to god. annokut is a day of eating together – the family prepares offerings to the lord in a common kitchen and offers it to him in the form of prasad. it was during this auspicious occasion that i captured this photograph.", says our reader somnath chatterjee

"varanasi, also known as kashi or benares, is famous for its fine-quality silks and paan. it is the most popular pilgrimage point for hindus and one of the seven holiest cities in india. in hinduism, it is believed that those who die and are cremated here receive an instant passage to liberation from the cycle of births and rebirths. varanasi is situated on the banks of the river ganga, which is believed to have the power to wash away all one’s sins. i spotted this man performing his morning prayer, and was struck by the beauty of it all.", says our reader soumi chakraborty

"we were staying in lodtunduh, a small village a few miles south of ubud, the cultural heart of bali. our house overlooked a beautiful setting of mountains and rice fields. with the villagers’ permission, we walked into the fields. it was mesmerising to watch these women at work in the scorching heat. they were happy to have their photos taken and seemed delighted to be the centre of attention. looking at this shot now reminds me of the beautiful surroundings, the great spirit of the women and the obvious joy they had at someone taking an interest in their daily tasks.", says our reader jonathan boyle

"it was our second day in cusco when we noticed a group of children dressed in newspaper costumes parading down the street. we decided to see what was going on and followed them to the steps of the cathedral, where they were arranged and doted on by parents and teachers. each costume was different, from firefighter to pirate and dragon. those poor children were then subjected to endless photo-taking by ooh-ing parents and curious tourists. we stayed to watch for a while, but never did find out why they were dressed up like that!", says our reader jen pappas

"i see this magnificent tree on peckham rye common through the bus window on my journey in to work every day. one particularly cold morning, i took the opportunity to ditch the bus and walk. just as i was ready to get my shot of the tree, it started to snow; the snowflakes transformed the park into a scene from a fairytale. it was early and there were only a few people about, so it was just me and a few hardy birds bracing themselves against the weather. to me, the image sums up the wildness hidden in cities."

"i spent the day travelling in and around hue, the former capital of vietnam. after lunch, served by buddhist nuns at a monastery, i stopped at a village where locals make conical hats. these hats are worn all over southeast asia, but the ones from hue are famous for having poetry embroidered on them; you see it when you hold the hat up to the light. the woman in the picture finished the hat in no time. my attempts to communicate may have ruined her rhythm, but she responded with a smile, and i came away with this photo – and a beautiful hat!", says our reader ben frodsham
