  • When you think back on journeys you made, more often than not you will end up tagging it with something you witnessed on the way...

    'the one where we saw a snake cross the road' .. 'the one with the cranky ticket seller' ... 'the one with the cabbie who slapped himself to stay awake' ... 'the one where we cut a birthday cake in the middle of the jungle' ... 'the one where I lost my way' ....

    this one was the one with the strange festival.. Moharram is largely an Islamic festival, but, it turned out that some Hindus celebrate it too.. and how do they do that? by throwing colors at each other, this pale yellow color that left a layer of dust on everything in the vicinity..
