PUJA GARLANDS

Deepavali ‘18: Loved spotting these vibrant post-puja (worship) garlands. Apparently, one of the things Indians pray for is safety (& safety on the roads I assume). Approach a friendly migrant worker if you’re interested to find out more!

SAREE TREES

"fruits will ripen faster if covered properly, as it traps ethylene, which the fruit naturally releases during ripening”

"Indian families in general tend to recycle cotton, we never throw away sarees.. after towels it becomes rags, even after that it still survives, we sew them all together to make it into a doormat"

Used to seeing these pretty sarees being worn but here they were being used as rags, exposed to the weather! (the bulges made them look strangely human-like...) Thank you Anbu my go-to person for all things Indian, for sharing.
