The stillness within

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Prakash Jha

A massive cloud casts a dark shadow on the Badapani Lake as it determinedly attempts to break through the sturdy armour of the still water as the sun sets in the Land of Clouds, Meghalaya. As clouds almost skid across the surface of the water, as though symbolizing the ancient balance of yin and yang, of balance. Between the stillness of the water and the bluster of the cloud, we find our peace.

Location: Shillong, Meghalaya, India
