Leap of Faith
The elderly lady, most likely the mother-in-law of the women facing her, instructs the younger woman in the ways of Hindu rituals. In doing so, she passes on ancient traditions, ensuring that time will not eclipse living heritage as it cycles through generations, instead breathing life into the tradition, lending it a timeless import.
Meanwhile, free of cares of the world, and too young to shoulder the responsibility of carrying the heritage forward, a young boy takes a leap of faith into the lake.
Elsewhere, a youth, having finished his dip in the waters, watches on.
