The Glass Bangle

Being a Woman


I have started a blog with Mr A called Shutter N Quill. We are aiming to merge his interest in photography with my love for words. I’ve been wanting to reblog one of our posts on The Glass Bangle, but somehow it was not happening. Today I got an image which completely took my breath away. A craggy, weatherbeaten face from which I just couldn’t take my eyes away. I’m afraid that my words can never do justice to this face. And there was absolutely no doubt in my mind that this is what I wanted to share here.

Shutter N Quill

He is Strength

The ability to

withstand invasions

and injustice.


The Stoicism

To accept

what was

and what will be.


The Fortitude

To witness

an Apocalypse

and still exist.


He is India

Strong, ravaged

united, divided

and still Enduring.
