Usha is the goddess of Dawn. She is the light of the mornig stars, the harbinger of the mighty sun-god Surya. She is young, being born again every day and still is ancient in her purpose.. She opens the path for Surya and is accompanied in her path by the divine twins Ashwini Kumars, the sons of Surya.. here i find striking similarities in the myth of Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn who is also accompanied by the twin stars Castor and Pollux.. Dressed in light and adorned with wisps, Usha appears in the East and removes the black robe of night driveing away evil spirits, nightmares and the hated darkness.. Here she is shown getting ready for the day's work.. there's a tiny jewel box on her right and she is trying out her jewelry and lukin in the mirror in her left hand :) I had clicked this photgraph from the window of a plane and it seemed perfect to me for making it the background of Usha's room.. let me know what you feel aboit it..
