I took this picture, early morning from across the Tungabhadra river. The air was cold and I could still hear the crickets and the frogs from along the water edge.
The water was cold all around, and I couldn’t help but wonder what a million years of creation would have been like !
Shadows of the famed civilization of the Vijaynagara Empire that once stood on the banks of this famous river could still be seen in the fading morning light, and I wish it would come back all over again….
When I look at this carving, it just reminds me of the patience man may have had to painstakingly carved this beautiful sculpture. What could it have taken ! Weeks, Maybe months, maybe even years. All done hundreds of years ago without any modern tools or machinery. An artwork of mankind that would probably last a few hundred of years more.
I took this picture with one intention in mind. To remind myself of the determination of a civilization that survived for hundreds of years..
Soil of the earth, crafted into creation, admired, treasured, holding the liquid which gives life and sustains a race of civilization.The depth of its worth has been evaluated over centuries and generations. Little bits of clay would always remain as remanants of a past, giving much to the present….Much like our lives.What we leave behind would always be spoken of and remembered..Our deeds, our actions…So as said, its not just the day, but tomorrow that would have meaning…
