Photographer's Note

The Black Beauty : After I Captured the photograph of the Sadhus ,I took a turn towards Boring Road from Shivpuri in Patna and found this young beautiful lady clad in a Black Burqa sitting on a cycle rickshaw accompanied by her mother in the middle and younger sister on the other side.I liked the ladies all clad in Black Burqas cramped on a small rickshaw seat meant for two passengers.This image is to bring curtains to my Bihar Series.Hope you have liked the images.

Some tidbits about Burqa :

A burqa is an enveloping outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions to cover their bodies when in public.The face-veiling portion is usually a rectangular piece of semi-transparent cloth with its top edge attached to a portion of the head-scarf so that the veil hangs down covering the face and can be turned up if the woman wishes to reveal her face. In other styles, the niqāb of the veil is attached by one side, and covers the face only below the eyes, allowing the eyes to be seen.Burqa is an Arabized Persian word of purdah (parda) meaning curtain and veil, which have the same meaning in Persian
