Please don’t hate me, but I ‘m having a hard time making sense of why the women have to cover their faces.
Ha Ha..Why should I hate you for this, in fact I’m glad you asked. Thing is in smaller towns in India, young girls cover their faces in public places to avoid any relatives, neighbors basically known people recognizing them which potentially leads to unimaginable gossip. Which also means you can’t go out on dates or meet guys in cafes but heritage sites where there’ll be tourists and locals won’t turn up. Get it?
Oh, like wearing huge sunglasses and wearing a scarf ? Or maybe changing the color of hair? It has nothing to do with culture or religion? ( at least in India, if I understood it correctly) * interesting*
Yeah, right. that’s a good analogy, just like stars go about in public places in a disguise. 😀
Can’t guess who it is but the picture is very nice. It is a good shot.
Thank you. Just an ironical stupid portrayal, we men never encounter but a woman does in a misplaced society from behind a mask…
The mysterious world of Islamic women…
Mysterious world of a conservative society treats all women alike irrespective of caste
BTW, it is easier for more people to see your comments if you put them in the main post instead of parts of the gallery.
Ron, I didn’t get that obviously cause I am not savvy but give me a day will figure out
Fantastic photo. If the woman is attempting to be invisible, to those who may know her, or anyone else who can give her trouble, she will fail, even with the head covering.
If this were my daughter, sister, mother, friend, aunt, I would recognize her anyway, by the shape of the legs, which is obvious in the tight jeans, the feet, exposed, the posture.
Your photo is flooded with irony, which makes it difficult to stop looking at.
WoW, She knows too, perhaps!
I grew up in a small town where if you did anything, I mean anything, your parents knew within the hour. Kept me pretty much a good girl! There were times I would have liked to be hidden!! Love the picture 🙂
There is so much happening in this picture-I really like how it captures the clash between old and new, and east and west, perhaps? Very, very nice!
Absolutely, Ironic dichotomy of sorts!
Thank you for your comment.
Your photography is beautiful and fascinating. I love the splash of blue in this shot and the person I can see in her eyes…
You have been so kind to me, speechless. Just saw your new post.
This is such an interesting post- great shot- and also great discussion here… So you mean that covering of the women’s face is more so she will not be recognized than anything else? Like a celebrity would cover up … to avoid gossip? Did I get that right? I thought there was more of a cultural/historical reason – no? Love to learn about different cultures and traditions. Thank you kindly ~ RL
Yes, that’s it.
In fact it was during the discussion, we came about with this analogy. Me learning too 🙂
On other hand her pairs of jeans helped us out. Hm!
