from the book The Lowland by Jhumpa Lahiri. 

"A new decade began: 1970. In winter when the trees were naked, the stiff ground covered with snow, a second letter came from Udayan, in an envelope this time. 
Subhash tore it open and found a small black-and-white photograph of a young woman. 
She was at ease, also a little skeptical. Her head turned partly to one side, her lips closed but playful, her smile slightly askew. Her hair was in a braid, draped over from one shoulder. Her complexion was deep. 
She was compelling without being pretty."

Hi duhi - I sent you a note a few days ago regarding the use of this image for a south asian literary journal. More details in your dA inbox. Could you please read and let me know what you think? Thanks!
