The pictures were taken by Uddhav between June and July 2010. In his preface, Uddhav writes in Marathi, "It is a tour of Pandharpur from the sky." The photographs try to capture the life of Varkaris (pilgrims) through their annual pilgrimage trek of 21 days. The book consists of aerial shots taken from a helicopter by Uddhav himself and portrays the colorful extravaganza, the grandeur as well as the significance of the padyatra (foot march).
