A wedding in the family - 2009

Sapna got married to Gunjan in 2009. The small and very traditional wedding featured the essentials - a marwa (where rituals are conducted), the purohit (on the right), and the bridesmaid ( on the left).Till the last reports came in, the groom (not in the pic.) and the bride are very happily married !

 The flowers were blooming and Spring had truly arrived. The Butterflies, alas, were nowhere to be seen !

Spring of 2011.

                                                                        The Spring is making way for summer. The tiny winged creatures of paradise dropped in and perched themselves all around to remind us that we could expect them every spring.

Buddha at Taxila

The following work in stone housed at the Taxila Museum has me quite stunned and much intrigued.
It shows Buddha blessing a 'Brahmin' ascetic who is seated in his hut and is reverential towards Buddha. Buddha's teachings to brahmin disciples is extensively documented in Pali canon. But what is fascinating in this image is depiction of a Greek scholar following Buddha around with what appears to be stationery to document Buddha's words ! I haven't come across records of Buddha teaching the Greeks. Truly Fascinating !
