Hello

An extract from my post on Palace of Datia:

"As I got down from the taxi at the Datia Palace, a little local girl in a not-too-clean white frock and dishevelled hair said 'hello' in a soprano-type sweet voice."


Hello from Datia


For those interested, a ready list of posts on the twin cities of Datia and Orchha:

1. Transience or Permanence
2. An evening in the Medieval Town of Orchha
3. Ostensibly Orchha
4. Palace of Datia
5. Of Bundelas and Mughals


Next travel post: Khajuraho

The cenotaph is also a great shot and yours Tranquil Tuesday pics are becoming a must!

That sweet voice and cheerful smile always ends up with some food or lil money but the pain inside remains the same, which reminds me every time how desperately those eyes were looking for a helping hand. I am clueless; can god be unfair to them???

Celine, I remember with pleasure that Datia Palace post. Thank you for giving us this photographic glimpse of the lovely little girl. Your words painted her beautifully too.

Awesome picture

Shantanu said...

Wonderful picture! You can't go wrong with children. :)

Zhu said...

Am I gonna repeat myself and say you really have a thing to take portrait pictures? This one is amazing. I can hear the little girl saying hello, shy and curious as the same time.

Alok,

Thank you for your comment.:)

I can imagine how moved you are. I am not in a position to judge who is fair or unfair. But let's do our part to help. Individually, can we begin?
