A tribute to magnificence

One of the places that I spent almost an hour in photography was on a recent visit to Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.

This statue of Shiva left me mesmerized. Sad to say that this work of art no longer adorns the banks of the Ganga at Rishikesh. The recent torrential rains in Uttarakhand swept it away alongwith a colossal loss of life and property.

Is it the wrath of God or the the self-imposed wrath of humankind that leads to these catastrophes?
