A Temporary Eclipse...

Posted by
Pavan Kaul (Mumbai, India) on 14 November 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.
~Victor Hugo
