Red Tuesday

The three pictures below were taken by my niece and nephew when they visited India 2 years ago.Children playing in a school
in a rural area a few kilometers outside the city.
Roadside flower sellers.

A closer shot.
These flowers are offered to the
Ganges river which is worshipped.
They are also temple offerings and people decorate their dashboards with them.

Today is my younger sister Namrita 's birthday
With her elder son

Mishael and Rayguel
Here is Namrita before her marriage

Amrita said...

Thanl you so much dear friends.

John I love showing the real face of India to the world.

Terry how did you know the meaning of Namrita - its one of the fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5. And she is just like her name.

Terry said...

Dearest Amrita...I looked up the meaning of Namrita on google.
You know all of the Bible names had special meanings, eh?
It is a real interest to me!
Amrita means "nectar"
How great can THAT be my precious Indian friend?...Love Terry

PS The full meaning of Amrita is;
Immortal, ambrosia, nectar....How GREATER is that?
