I participated in a photo walk here in Jaipur a few months ago. You can read more about it in this post Photo walk in Jaipur/ Street Photography – Faceless Frames ” Hands
As I was heading back after this photo walk, I saw this person in a deep sleep at one of the Gokhas of a heritage building which now a government-run library in Jaipur. This is one of the first libraries of Jaipur.
Gokhas can be found in all old buildings in Rajasthan especially Havelis. These are important architectural elements of haveli architecture and are arched sit-outs on either side of the entrance. These were essentially designed as a social space. The residents of Haveli used to sit here so they could chit-chat with the known passerby.
Here are two close-ups of the above picture in monochrome.
This reminded me of a quote:
“What hath night to do with sleep?” – John Milton.
I’m sure everything in the world can wait for a good sleep. What do you think?
