Here, he curates the work of other photojournalists in Mumbai.

"I prefer the photographers pack in as much information as possible which I sometimes have to ask them to add in," the Wakaskar told BuzzFeed.

Wakaskar said that apart from being a selfie and food photo-sharing platform, Instagram can be an important photojournalism medium.

"The reach of the medium particularly amongst the youth is incredible, and I've consciously tried to push stories of social relevance on the page such as about environment change, homosexuality, etc," said Wakaskar.

The account shares photos taken by amateur photographers, professional photojournalists working in Mumbai, and even foreign photographers who visit the city.
