here at last

I’m doing fine, shingles bedamned! Had a wonderful day exploring Connaught Circle and haggling for rugs with vendors, complimentary teas, all-meat lunch and pigging out generally. This was all capped off by a sneaky shopping foray into a bridal store next door and asking for permission to take photos of all the fancy sarees. You wouldn’t believe so many jewels? Fake? Real. Only the shadow knows….

Finally got the nerve to ask the young girl trying on sarees for her March wedding and she said yes, shy and demurely. Made our day. Will post pictures when we’re back in SLC.

Have only a few moments, literraly–foprgive typos. Bye til next time.

  2. Wedding Sarees/ At this age? Designs change every fortnight. In India there is only one marriage in one’s entre life. The marriage saree bought at the age of 18, pink saree conjeevaram silk should be kept safe for life. Nagarajan
