Nandini’s dream © vaishali paliwal
Nandini dreams of the exotic eagle that had earlier escaped from the cage of the evil king. In her dream the eagle follows her everywhere carrying a red satin cloth in his beak. She tries to catch the eagle to see the cloth more closely and touch its divine texture and feel its dense blood color and wear it on her mortal skin but she never succeeds. Her life goes on with the knowledge of the carrier and the message but she never finds out their secret. One day time stops and the red satin cloth is seen wrapped around the desert sun. .
