India reimagined


Ganesha the god of New Beginnings

and Remover of Obstacles,

Hanuman the god of Strength and Knowledge

reigned over monkeys, lizards, squirrels, brolga birds

integrating with the vibrations of humankind,

all dwelling on ancient, sacred, mystical land

upon layers of narratives, old tracks and trails,

enfolding stories of Maharajas and Mughals

with remnants of palatial dreams shining

through the light and shadow of impermanence,

their monuments — a window to the crowning glory

of conquest, power and opulence trailed by the cycle

of disarray, decay and decline, their temples

transformed into museums of transition.
