Leheriya In The Light


Leheriya Fabric On Sale Jaipur

Jaipur, Rajasthan

The Sun slanted through an opening between buildings perched on a narrow lane, lighting up leheriyas on sale in a shop manned by an elderly Muslim man whose years showed in his eyes, sunk between high, bony cheeks.

It’s in the texture sunshine acquires from illuminating spaces that lends light a character, and verve, triggering memories and reminiscences. And lanes become welcoming even if the people living there are not.

Light is life!

Hi, I'm not sure if you remember me. I came across one of your old posts while looking for 'American Express Bakery' (in Bandra). And your blog URL sounded familiar.

I see you've been blogging till very recently. Hope you're doing okay and the pandemic hasn't been too hard on you.

You might remember me as IdeaSmith. I'm not anonymous anymore.

IdeaSmith: Hello. Sorry, saw your comment just today. Yes, I do remember you. Nice to hear from you. Posts here have been infrequent.

Pandemic was hard, like for everyone I suppose. Been well. How's things been with you? Hope you're doing well too.
