An Orange Delight

“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

(Kahlil Gibran - Lebanese American artist, poet, and writer, 1883 – 1931)


Those ladies came in front of the main door of Ramnagar fort which is still the residence of the maharajas of Varanasi (Benaras) and which is lying across river Ganga beyond Asi Ghat.

My eye was attracted by the shades of orange.

There is something sorrowful in this place, a kind of melancholy, maybe this feeling comes from the state of decay of the palace which used to be a splendor once upon a time...
