Marriage : A graceful togetherness

Marriage might not sound as exciting as falling in love does, however, it is one such entity, which has an appeal that one needs to savor to believe in. To the sarcastic it might mean a peaceful or an efficient coexistence, to me it signifies a graceful togetherness. All it takes is some imagination to recognize its layered metaphor.

Above is a snapshot from Satyajit Ray’s Mahanagar. The movie vividly portrays the relationship dynamics between a couple, during tough times. Though it was made in the 60s it is aesthetically and socially relevant even now.
