Two Women

Women @ Taj Mahal

Women @ Taj Mahal

After walking through the Taj Mahal, people tended to linger. I know I did. For one, it was much cooler than the body heated interior of the tomb. But mostly I lingered to sit and contemplate the beauty of the great structure. The Taj has a beauty that, once seen, must be mulled over to truly grasp the exquisiteness. People tend to linger until the guards shoo them away to make way for the next wave of humanity. Just beyond the short wall is a river and beyond that forest.

The woman on the left is sitting in a posture frequently seen in India for chairs are not used in many homes. I am not able to hold the position of the woman for my knees and hamstrings lost that level of flexibility decades ago.
