  2. Once
    a versatile young woman
    extending her mind
    to many sides,
    and reaching
    far and wide
    in native medicinal matters,
    amidst
    great attention to her
    offsprings
    and green connections,
    she now stands
    entrenched
    in place,
    in her Vanprasthashram,
    still majorly green,
    but
    unable to battle
    the wrinkles
    at her neck.....

  6. Love the framing and the composition. It tends to draw you inwards and outwards at the same time. Great shot.
