MAHARANI THE COW
Lined up on a street are noisy motorbikes, honking cars, crowded buses, impatient autos... In their midst sits Maharani! At the heart of this funny little vignette is a cool-as-a-cucumber cow, an all too familiar character of an Indian streetscape. Nancy Raj’s full-of-life pictures bustle with detail and drama, capturing the bovine and the boisterous as everyone tries to unseat her highness.
