Photographer's Note

A simple yet elegant memorial to Adi Shankaracharya right behind Kedarnath temple. His hand and staff emerge from behind the thick and hard wall of ignorance to guide us and be with us.

His footprints are no longer visible but his hand is and the message his hand conveys is also clearly visible.

The backdrop of Meru & Sumeru, the ill-maintained memorial, the crow on the staff, the electricity lines, the yellow dustbin and a bit of a human dwelling all add to the intermix of changes wrought by time and the timeless, unchanging messages he brings to us.
