#322 quiet meditation

322/365 quiet meditation, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

A glimpse of the quieter side of India, by the Jal Mahal Water Palace, in Jaipur. A hindu is taking off his shoes for an early morning ritual by the water. What a contrast to the noisy chaos elsewhere, but also the kind of meditative existence I expected to find in India.

I feel every human being craves for some peace and quiet at times. In my world, it is easy to find – to the extent that I sometimes find Finland a little too quiet and predictable. In the most populous countries of the world, such as India or China, I can imagine that people must struggle to find ways of calming down. Taking this picture, I almost felt like an intruder in somebody’s very personal, private moment. I had a very similar feeling in Beijing, photographing people doing tai chi or other meditative exercise in a park early one morning.
