Krishna and the Gopikas Murals at Bundi... Rajasthan, India

10:23 AM / Posted by li i / comments (0)

The murals of the Bundi palace (Unesco World Heritage) are among the most beautiful Indian paintings.
Located in a house, the Chitra Shala, they relate the richness of life at the court of the early seventeenth century to the late nineteenth century, but they mostly depict scenes of traditional religious and literary texts.
This palace "Garh Palace", whose construction began in the sixteenth century, is a rare example of pure Rajput style.

The last kites of Uttarayan 2013

12:20 PM / Posted by li i / comments (0)

Kite flying reaches its peak as the people of Ahmedabad enjoy the last hour of Uttarayan.

Uttarayan, or Makar Sankranti, celebrates the northern ascent of the Sun. In Gujarat, the festival is celebrated by flying kites. People of all ages throng the city's rooftops for two straight days flying kites and engaging in kite fights.

The scientific reason behind kite flying is for the population to get a nice sun bath and help generate a healthy dose of Vitamin D. The sun isn't very harsh at this time of the year.

"Dhak", a special variety of drum is an integral part of the Durga Puja. People who play these dhaks are called "dhakis". Ninety Nine percent of the people who plays these dhaks are from outside Calcutta. Round the year, most of them earn their livelihood by working as labourers in paddy fields. However, as 'Sasthi' comes by, the 'Dhaki's, as they are called in Bengali, starts gathering in places adjacent to the different railway stations in and around Calcutta. They are picked from there by the Puja organisers and are contracted for the four days of Puja.
