A lively young lady at the idol maker's colony happily posed for me against an idol of Devi Durga, "the invincible" Indian goddess. They were migrant artisans who created idols for worship to cater to the growing demand of celebrating elaborate festivals in urban India. She had made me promise that I would give her a few prints as a keepsake later, so I went back 2 days later to keep my promise only to realize that a cruel twist of fate had taken her life in an accident at home the same day this image was clicked. This image was all that was left to remember her by.
