Soulie Saturday #23: Latticed windows at Gateway of India, Mumbai.

Gateway of India, Mumbai.

My heart is so small
it's almost invisible.
How can You place 
such big sorrows in it?

"Look," He answered,

"your eyes are even smaller,
yet they behold the world.”

― Jalaluddin Rumi


This soulie inspired by the arched latticed small windows as I saw them in the Gateway of India in Mumbai - small but not insignificant, enough of passing some big light through it! The Gateway of India as we know is the famous prominent landmark of Mumbai that was built during the 20th century in Bombay, India, erected to commemorate the landing of King George V and Queen Mary at Apollo Bunder on their visit to India in 1911.


This post is part of an ongoing series called Soulie Saturday on My Yatra Diary..., a spiritual exploration of that which is Unseen and a celebration of that Ultimate sacred space we yearn for - within and without - and the riches we carry in our own hearts.
