LAJJA (Hindi) literally means Shyness…

In India, a feeling of shyness is universal nature of Women… It is considered to be most beautiful ornament a woman can wear, with Smile, Care etc. being the others…

Eyelids drown close or looking down, with a smile on lips which is hardly large to be seen… but still the beauty inside speaks aloud…

A straight-into-lens look wouldn’t bring the beauty out so elegantly as a “Lajja” ( A SHY BEAUTY} would do…

Portrait of my niece at the time of her wedding. A full studio setup was there, including backgrounds.
