This lovely Shashi-authored photograph collection was published in the December 1–15, 1984 issue of Filmfare. I was ethically torn over blogging these: they're not my photos to share, but the bittersweetness of them tugged at my heartstrings until I let them loose on you. Look at them in New York in 1963:
part standard tourists seeing the sights squinting against the sun and wind, part easy, bouyant confidence of critical acclaim for the struggling artist, part the curve of her coat against the straight flagpoles. DIL SQUISH.
