I just love how her wrinkles stand out. They add so much character to a person. I always fail to understand why women go the Botox way when natural is so much classier. She was the oldest woman in a tiny village near Dharamsala. Almost close to 100 and still going strong.
Cricket, politics and cinema are often called the connecting forces that unite India but on a physical level I think it’s the Indian railways. Take a longish route and you’re soon exposed to the most myriad types of experiences and people. What better way to foster tolerance and understanding than being stuffed in a metal cabin with other people?
Happy Diwali to everyone. 🙂
India celebrates its Independence Day on the 15th of August. The Indian School of Business has started a tradition of hosting school children from impoverished backgrounds including the blind and the deaf. Under the banner of the event “Bandhan” students of this business school volunteer to sing, dance, teach and get taught alongside these children.
Below is a collection of pics from just one slice of the day – as the kids prepare to do some craft work (art in my humble opinion).
