“Happiness often sneaks in through a door…”

There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.

Aldous Huxley

Doors are like the ‘face’ of a house. They speak a lot about your home. The door gives an impression of the taste of the homeowner. Sometimes the colors, carvings and architectural design of a doorway can represent the essence of a culture or tradition of that particular region where you see it. These typical Rajasthani doorways in Mehrangarh Fort speaks of the grandeur and extravaganza of aristocratic Rajput lifestyle of medieval era. I love the arches and intricate carvings on this door. What about you?
