“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world.
God is not a secret to be kept.
We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill.
If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you?
I’m putting you on a light stand.
Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives.
By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.”
(From the Bible – Matthew 5:13-20, “The Message”)

One afternoon during summer I was walking in a narrow street of the oldest part of Varanasi (Benaras) and I saw this staircase with a simple jali from where the light was coming in.
I stayed inside for a few minutes in order to enjoy the air which was streaming out there.
