We were the Leopards

We were the Leopards


"We were the Leopards, the Lions, those who’ll take our place will be little jackals, hyenas; and the whole lot of us, Leopards, jackals, and sheep, we’ll all go on thinking ourselves the salt of the earth." (spoken by Don Fabrizio – The Leopard) As I was walking nearby the holy waters of the Golden Temple in Amritsar (Punjab), I saw this young lady who was worshiping. She realized I was taking pictures of her, she smiled at me and gave me this amazing look that reminded me at once Claudia Cardinale in Luchino Visconti movie “The Leopard” (Il Gattopardo – 1963). She had the same grace and beauty of the Italian actress.
