Birth of a Mother...

Posted by Pavan Kaul (Mumbai, India) on 4 December 2009 in People & Portrait.

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh

@Nilla: Thank you for the visit Nilla, but I would like to tell you that I walk this earth PROUDLY, as one who LOVES his world, fellow humans, environment, and all other forms of life! My photography is intended to be a TRIBUTE to all these and a CELEBRATION of life! As such, I strongly feel, there is no need for me to SNEAK around, and I object to your careless and derogatory use of the term!
