Doors Of India: A Picture post


Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers

The quirky wanderer has a penchant for doors.

Where ever she goes the first thing that captures her eyes is a door. It is quite inexplicable. But doors have always fascinated me. The colors, textures and patterns on Indian doors are remnants of an old , forgotten world. And living in concrete jungles, finding a bright, freshly painted , aesthetic door is a delight in itself.

Today’s post is a Picture post. I will let the doors do the talking. Of course these are some from my collection over various Villages and towns in India.

Each door has its own story. The locals often giggle when I am photographing their doors. One bewildered lady once asked me,” Darwaza kyu kheech rahe ho?”Β  (Why are you clicking a Door?)

I couldn’t put in words, these are our connect to our culture. Our cities may have skyscrapers and modern amenities, but they don’t have bright blue doors , which can lift your mood instantly πŸ™‚

  1. Lovely shots dear… Beautiful concept. The green door is exactly like my village house doors which I occasionally visit. You just enliven the sweet memories in front of my eyes. Thanks for this simple yet heart-touching post πŸ™‚

  2. Hello there,

    Good collection. South India also some typical door styles. My parents stay in a house which has an ornate lock with huge keys. Will click when I visit them.

    Cheers!

  3. Another interesting theme, Divya πŸ™‚

    Reminds me of a saying related to doors “doors are reflections of the people inside” not the exact words but with same meaning, can we agree on that, difficult, right?
