These horses hold their sway at a small temple in the interiors of rural Tamil Nadu. They convey colour and sense of raw presence through the lens of the camera.
Through the lens of the eye, the statues almost jump at you with a neigh of a horse in motion. Especially when you see multitudes of people thronging the precincts with hope and fervour. Cooking the traditional pongal , dancing to hard beats and an alien but alluring tune. All in reverence. In honour of the lord.
For the ill to be warded. A child to be cured. Or even a prayer of thanks, for all that has been and in subtle way, asking for the ‘nice’ to perpetuate!
Today, for some reason, these horses with their vibrant colours and reverberating neighs come before my eyes as I review an assortment of thoughts that I want to share at #WIN
There are a heap of real cool people coming in today. I have had great fun putting my thoughts together, not to mention dealing with the countless memories that came rushing back of Sundar, Ghost Particle, Manu and several others! People who I aspired to hang out with on blogs ten years ago and who went to become wonderful friends. Yes. Its I hope My Story will resonate with a few that come.
Follow #WIN on twitter today. And of course, wish me some more luck!
