Ancient portals have always fascinated me. This locked door (locks evoke intrigue) went somewhere in an ancient fort in Jaipur. I wonder what events happened beyond the portal. Did the room host elegant dances for the gentry? Was it a secret room for the King’s dalliances with flaxen haired lasses? Even though I did not cross the threshold, could not peer beyond the wooden barrier and look inside I do know something it holds and that is my imagination.
