I collaborated with this amazing photographer @datsouptik for a documentary shoot titled " Finding Durga" .
Where i used dance and movement to explore the Durga inside me .
This is a snippet from the documentary ,inside the metro rail just before we got kicked out .
I will use a pretentious lyrics for the caption of this photo. Because that's who I am. ,,😙😙
. "Pack yourself a toothbrush dear
Pack yourself a favorite blouse
Take a withdrawal slip
Take all of your savings out
'Cause if we don't leave this town
We might never make it out
I was not born to drown
Baby come on"
Every time I ride a metro in Paris, its awe-striking infrastructure never cease mesmerizing my soul and spirit. Each station possesses a unique architectural beauty. Some are, for instance, because of its vastness in size while some are of its incredible depth into the ground with perfect ventilation and light, and some others are because of its carefully decorated artistic pieces. I took this pic yesterday in which what might at first glance look like the staircase of a great skyscraper is actually the metro escalator being built in the center of Paris at Place Saint Michel near Notre Dame. Let's take a look at the largest metro stations in the whole world, according to 10mostworld.com, Paris Metro scores the second;

Opened in 1904, it’s also one of the oldest (8th oldest to be exact). The NYC subway has a total length of 373 km (232 mi) – that’s 4th in the world, and a whooping 1.7 billion riders as to 2013!
