A night in Old Delhi.

It felt like a film. And all of the old Delhi in its nightly beauty seemed like a blur background.

Let’s leave it like this. A photograph, of sorts. Preserved forever as the present without any distinction of time.

Maybe also like a silent film where dialogues come after the moment, sometimes skipping it altogether. You hear what I say only after I say it, anyway. For my voice in the present belongs only to me. You hear it after the moment I have actually spoken.

We all belong to different times, that way. We cannot escape these timescapes except in instants we do not speak to each other.

  1. This is beyond beautiful.
    I almost felt I was there in that photograph somewhere…extremely embarrassed to be a part of a frame that shouldnt include me.but loving the frame nonetheless.
