The Prince In Palanquin - by Raja Deen Dayal

March 4, 2011


I found this picture really intersting.  Also the write up about the picture was equally intersting... see the use of word 'palanquin' derived from the Hindi word 'Palki'.

Rocksea - wow! great idea!

Harish - I know!!

Neeha - Palki, well u must have seen in old hindi movies, how rich ppl would sit in a wooden carriage, with four people holding it from four sides and walking. Something like a 'doli' in which brides of the yesteryears would sit at the time of marriage.
