Traditional dwellings of Kutch

Typically round walled with a conical roof made of dry grass, the Bhunga is sturdy, climate friendly and socially engaging. It is such a humble yet grand structure: so dim and cool inside in contrast to the harsh, dry heat outside, so colourful and vibrant as opposed to the arid landscape it stands on, so spacious in spite of it's modest size.
I immediately fell in love.

- Copper Bells

- Lacquer

Do take a look at more pictures of the craft tour on Matsya's webpage and John's blog!

Holi in Mathura

This was my first Holi away from home, away from the comfort and familiarity of celebrating with friends and family right outside the building compound.

And what a place we chose! Mathura. Lord Krishna's birthplace. Land of the holy river, Yamuna. People immersed in the spirit of devotion, mischief and romance.

Devotees from all parts of the country throng the holy land to witness the spirit of the festival. And so, in spite of several warnings from friends and strangers [it can get pretty rowdy], we went!

Take a look at John's post on Mathura here! I just love what he has written, and of course, his Holi tee is an epic souvenir! :D
