The Days of the Goddess

With the Bengali festival of the goddess Durga in the offing, here is another photo-story.

can I exist?

the question remains still

even when broken

how holy do you feel?

living is but waiting

suppressing the scream

unseeing is fated

escape is a dream

voice there is little

pain there is much

the path is never easy

fate is mostly such

privilege is a myth

but indignity stands tall

the light does no justice

redness is all
