"Oh, Time Will Pass Away, Sir"

"...Are samay gujar jaavega baabuu

lok kathaa rah jaavegii

baat puraanii ho jaavegii

naam sadaa rah jaavega..."

 

"...Oh, time will pass away, sir,

but folktales will last forever!

The tales will grow old;

their names will last forever..."

 

A few words from "PHIR RAAT KATI" a song in "Paheli" (पहेली, "Riddle" in English), a Bollywood movie released in 2005.

This film is based on a Rajasthani fable and its aestheticism and poetry has been inspiring me a lot in many of my images when I am using stars, fluids or gases in order to have some magic.

 

I took this picture in a village somewhere in Rajasthan a few minutes before sunset.

Talking about the colours of this state of India would be very "cliché", however...
