FACE

Face

Taken in Kolkata, 2012.

If you find yourself in Kolkata during the pujas and look past the swarming thousands of faces moving with you, the one you will see most frequently is this face in a multitude of forms. She is the face of the Bengalee.

This is the face of the antagonist in the story behind ten days of annual festivities among Bengali communities all over the world. (Yep, this is an edit of the real picture I took, but I like what the added contrast and monotone does to it.)

Indian culture is filled with faces- of the good and bad, the people we are and what a face really holds within its folds. This is the face of Bengal.
