Silent chaos.

Noticed another thing, two houses with almost same architecture but different colors, pink and blue, almost signifying a separate entrance for guys and gals (of course, based on preconceived notions).

I think to a certain extent the picture signifies "India", a chaotic country with orderly system, a country where the past intermingles with present and future, where the nature finds its space along with humans...

Coming to my previous thought, "Does the India of past or present look the same as seen from blue entrance and pink??" I hope so...

Ivan said...

:-) Interesting thought.

Ivan said...

Two blue and one pink; reflecting the sex ratio in India?

Ivan said...

Or patriarchal hegemony?

Ivan said...

My premise is more simple - each entrance opens to a separate world inhabited by separate families.
