Varanasi, India: Probably the persons sleeping in open boats are as poor as the persons forced to sleep on the footpaths of big cities, but may be in the boat floating on the waves there is a sensation of a mother rocking her child?

वाराणसी, भारतः खुली नाव में सोने वाले शायद महानगरों में फुटपाथ पर सोने वाले जैसे ही गरीब होते हैं, लेकिन शायद लहरों के साथ हिचकोले खाती नाव में माँ की ममता की थपकी होती है?

Varanasi, India: Forse le persone che dormono nelle barche aperte sono povere come quelle costrette a dormire sui marciapiedi delle metropoli, ma che nelle barche sulle onde, vi è la sensazione di una mamma che dondola il bimbo?

London, UK: When new cities come up to replace the old ones, I love it when old but beautiful heritage buildings are saved and are integrated into the new. London docks is one such example. There, in between the gleaming skyscrappers, you can see old buildings and bridges, thus the thread between the old and the new histories is not broken.

लँडन, ब्रिटेनः जब पुराने शहर की जगह पर नये शहर बनते हैं तो पुराने सुन्दर भवनों आदि को नष्ट न होने देना और उन्हें नये में समन्वय करना मुझे बहुत अच्छा लगता है. लँडन की बँदरगाह पर ऐसा ही हुआ है. वहाँ नये चमकते गगनचुम्बी भवनों के बीच आप को पुराने भवन व पुल भी दिख जाते हैं, और पुराने तथा नये इतिहास का तार नहीं टूटता.

Londra, Inghilterra: Quando si costruiscono nuove città per sostituire quelle vecchie, mi piace quando i vecchi edifici storici e belli sono preservati e integrati nel nuovo contesto. Il porto di Londra ne è un esempio. Là tra i nuovi grattacieli luccicanti, potete vedere vecchie case e ponti, così il filo che collega la vecchia alla nuova storia non si rompe.

Chhattarpur, Delhi, India: One of the temples here is dedicated to Hanuman, the monkey god, who is shown in different forms. The form of Hanuman shown in the first image is something I saw for the first time, where he has five heads, including a human one and of different animals. Mixing together of humans, animals and birds in the religious stories, is a way to express the essential unity of nature on the earth.

छत्तरपुर, दिल्ली, भारतः यहाँ का एक मन्दिर हनुमान जी को समर्पित है जिसमें उनके विभिन्न रूप दिखाये गये हैं. पहली तस्वीर वाले हनुमान का रूप मैंने पहली बार देखा जिसमें उनके पाँच सिर हैं, मानव से ले कर विभिन्न पशुओं के. धार्मिक कथाओं में मानव, पशु, पक्षी व प्रकृति का इस तरह घुले मिले होना, हमें धरती पर जीवन की अभिन्नता का संदेश देता है.

Chhattarpur, Delhi, India: Uno dei templi qui è dedicato a Hanuman, il dio scimmia, che è presentato in diverse forme. Era la prima volta che lo vedevo nella forma presentata nella prima immagine, con cinque teste, compresa una umana e di diversi animali. Mescolare così le persone con gli animali e gli uccelli nei racconti religiosi, è un modo di esprimere l'unità essenziale della vita sulla terra.
