Ghost Towns and Deserted Cities. (Tales from India IV).

«Ghost Towns and Deserted Cities» constitue le quatrième volet des «Tales from India». Nous vous invitons à un long voyage à travers les états du Madhya Pradesh, de l’Uttar Pradesh, du Rajasthan et à une promenade dans le vieux Delhi.

Tout au long de ce périple l’on voit des choses étonnantes : Une cité impériale à peine achevée qui est aussitôt désertée par toute la cour de l’empereur car les lieux n’étaient qu’imparfaitement irrigués ; Un palais dont la construction dura vingt années et qui ne servit que l’espace d’une nuit pour abriter le repos d’un empereur qui était venu chasser le tigre dans les environs ; Des temples couverts de fresques érotiques ; des lieux vénérés par des bouddhistes venus du monde entier car le Bouddha y prêcha son premier sermon, ou encore l’une des plus anciennes villes du monde où vacillent, la nuit venue, les flammes des bougies des prêtres qui officient et où s’élèvent vers les étoiles celles des bûchers funéraires...
