More than a thousand people so far have lost their lives in a building collapse in Bangladesh a little over a couple of weeks ago.
Among them, this anonymous couple, frozen in an embrace even death could not break.
The photograph is poignant, yet, despite the tragic context, it is also strangely, hauntingly...beautiful. It echoes the recent discovery in Romania of a pair of skeletons - dubbed as Romeo and Juliet - holding hands since they both died sometime in the Middle Ages.
And, even earlier than that, the "Lovers of Valdaro": a Neolithic couple buried together in an eternal embrace.
No one knows if that Bangladeshi couple were lovers, husband and wife, co-workers, or even complete strangers. But when tragedy befell them, at the very least - and I'm aware this is cold comfort for those they left behind - they had someone to embrace them in the end.
Rest in peace. Love forever.
