A glance inside, a glimpse outside
"I was dreaming of that day when you came my way
The smell of mangos, that impatient side-glance of yours
You took my hand
Pulled me inside the covered entrance to that palace
A life later I remember I caught a glimpse of you making your way outside the porch
I tried to follow you through the crowd
It has been a long while and I am still there
Inside is coming a breath of fresh air
It’s not the mango season anymore, winter is calling
I was waiting that you may hold me by the hand again
I gave a quick glance at my watch
This was shot under the porch of an old palace in Varanasi (Benaras) which has been divided into several small apartments, deeper inside there is a garden with palm and mango trees and the rest of the building which is left to some administration.
From the street it is not possible to know that such a beautiful place is there.
After the entrance time has stopped.
