Apparently after Diwali, wedding season kicks into high gear. There are weddings nearby almost every night; our guest house was right by a big garden venue place so there was always music blasting and fireworks booming.
We came across this one evening as we were walking home. Yes, there are people paid just to hold up electric lights so the wedding party can dance smack dab in the middle of the street.
Cows in the 'Milkman Colony' of Jodhpur, right by the headquarters of one of the NGOs other MSID students are at I took this in the early days of this internship, when I was going stir crazy down in the library... I could fit three or four of me in this drum. The hide still has some hairs on it, which I'd never seen before.
