Photographer's Note

Hindus are great believers in God and when misfortunes befall , they take vows that when their wishes are fulfilled they will go to the temple and perform certain rituals that they have promised to God. It could be anything from illness to getting married or financial troubles etc. Here a lady took a vow to climb all the 300 steps to the temple on the hill coating each step with Kumkum(red powder) and Turmeric(yellow) powder. The kumkum stands for our emotions or inner wisdom and the turmeric powder stands for our inner purity and on the negative side, for our inner pride and egoism.
