Reflection

Lit through forgiving the loss and colored by embracing his memory, the aging window is reminded of the emperor by the archway that fades and peels against time but refuses to let down.


Shinde Chhatri, in Pune, is a memorial dedicated to the 18th century military leader Mahadji Shinde who was one of the three pillars of Maratha Resurrection in India. This note is about the interaction between the archway and window in the picture, that reflect the defiance and strength of memory against mortality.
