In The Cage?

Inside the Taj Looking Out

Inside the Taj Looking Out

This picture was taken from inside the Taj Mahal. She is looking out. At what? Perhaps the people, perhaps the minarets, perhaps one of the other buildings that make up the complex. Is she longing for freedom? Is she longing for relief from the body heat filling the building from the mass of tourists? Is she wondering if this is what the women in purdah feel like day after day, week after week, decade after decade?
