Dry River Bed

'The dry river bed finds no thanks for its past", wrote Gurudev Rabindra Nath Tagore almost a century ago. His writings earned him a Nobel Prize. But more than that, he weaved magic with his words. Words which were few, simple and yet conveyed deep thoughts.
This PQ- in Ghumakkad's Picturesque Quote series- is inspired by Tagore's writings. The other day browsing through RSI library in Secunderabad, I came across a collection of Tagore's quotations titled 'Stray Birds'. A beautifully compiled book. Actually a collector's item.

Next I had to select a picture of a dry river bed. Few months ago when we had visited Kawal Tiger Reserve in Adilabad district of Telangana, all the rivers and canals had dried up. This picture of the dry river bed matched with Tagore's timeless words. Enjoy the PQ. More PQs inspired by Tagore will follow.
