Children's Day in India..

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 14 November 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

14 th November is the birthday anniversary of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru - the FIRST prime minister of Independant India.

He loved children a lot and this day is celebrated all over our country as Childrens Day.

Among flowers, Rose was his favorite.

To symbolise the above, I searched my archives for pictures of roses and could land up only with these...

This picture is not great ...
but due to lack of time ..keeping the anniversary in mind,
I concentrated on the concept and symbolisation in the picture - rather than the actual picture...
I hope all is forgiven.

No need to apologize, it is a beautiful image. I like the softness, it's also symbolic of a soft and cuddly young child.

It's more important to honor the day that to be too particular about the picture. I like your rose picture for the fine colors and depth it has. Nice post.
