Sourav Ghosh's picture of the IIT Bombay Campus wins honorable mention in the competition to select the picture of the most photogenic research institute campus in India. His aerial view of the funky buildings amidst the verdant surroundings of the Powai campus backgrounded by Powai lake showcases the IIT Bombay campus: modernity blending into nature, not supplanting it.
