Photographer's Note

Hampi, the capital of Vijayanagar Empire, offers us to see the best and worst of human nature.

On one hand, we see the best of human creativity in poetic stone sculptures and structures, a well planned city, and the human effort to create it.

On the other, the dark side - that of destruction and apathy.

On the day I was to return from Hampi, I was thinking along these lines, when I saw the sun setting like how you see in this picture.

I felt like it was a symbolic message sent by the heavens above - all good things come to an end - the sun set on the Vijayanagar Empire - and the sun set on that memorable trip.

But the sun will rise again, to show us new landscapes, new vistas, new sights, and life will go on...
