Photographer's Note

Celebration of Ganesha in Paris.

I wanted to share a photo in colours but I'm in the mood for b&w again.

"तिलक" means Tilak, in Sanskrit, and , in English, the third eye.

The tilaka symbolize the third eye, or mind's eye, that is associated with many Hindu gods and the idea of meditation and spiritual enlightenment. In the past, tilakas were usually worn by gods, priests, ascetics, or worshippers, but is now a common practice for most Hindus. (From wikipedia)
