That memorable day died in purple and gold, and just as the last traces of the sunset faded in the west and the star-lilies filled the sky, the full moon looked down over the rim of the valley, and the great rocks, catching the silvery glow, came forth out of the dusky shadows like very spirits.john muir

India of the ages is not dead nor has She spoken Her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human peoples.
