“It isn’t safe to sit in judgment upon another person’s illusion when you are not on the inside.
While you are thinking it is a dream, he may be knowing it is a planet.” (Mark Twain)

This is one more picture of our new catalogue.
I took it at the upper terrace which is on the top of our office in Varanasi (Benaras).
Anand who is our favourite model is holding an embroidered throw in pure wool with patterns inspired by the Mughal designs which are on the Taj Mahal (RED HALO – Winter 2008).

This image is a sensual illusion because Anand was not nude, he was wearing a small dhoti which is a rectangular piece of unstitched cloth that I removed with Photoshop in this version.
I am sorry to break the “dream” but this young man is not a professional model, he is only modelling for me and therefore as I respect him I have to be honest and clarify this false appearance.

    Thank you, Twain wrote so many things about Benaras as well and therefore I keep on reading his quotes in many things that come my way.
    Have a nice day.
