coooool...





















Photo by -Endevourme

cool afternoons,
relaxed Me,

centuries old temples,
structures in stone,

quiet corridors,
wide spaces,
old familier smells,


am i dreaming? or i am truely awake?

hmm for a minute it almost seemed familiar but nope havent been there...
phir wahi raah hain
har darwaza ek sa hain
band taale, khoyi chaabi
kahin nahi manzil ka pata hain

Mmmmmm

'twas so clearly imprinted on the mind's eye. and to see it here now! It was such a hot morning that my feet burned over the sunny passages in that humungous temple- yet this picture looks so aptly coooool!

And while on that temple, I just LOOOOOOVE the huge black image of the goddess there. She rocks and how!

Thanks for unleashing these stored away memories :)

thanks... when i said that it had a familiar look i thought it might have been the jain temples at mt abu.. same long haunting construction

my college was very close to this temple, and so we have spent many a lazy afternoon there. sometimes, we used to just sit and chat. sometimes, i'd sneak up there all alone to be with myself, or just sleep :)

"am i dreaming? or i am truely awake?"

do u know if there is a difference between the two? i mean, only then would we be able to tell, no?

Shitrint said...

deepti said...

"Cool afternoons"
"am I dreaming or I am truly awake"
Seems like a forgotten memory being hummed somewhere...
Sounds nostalgic...

old temples and artifacts, the smell of the town, caves and etc - always make me wonder what life was like then. what would i be doing if i was alive THEN... its kinda corny, but i picture my self in those times..
