Hi there! The last little while here in Southern India has involved a lot of different celebrations and holidays. In this little blog post I’m sharing some of my experiences and thoughts about some of the ones I’ve been lucky enough to come across while living and working in Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh. It’s hard to do these kinds of occasions justice and of course I still have a ways to go in understanding and unpacking what many of these events mean and the diverse forms they take on. I’m also attaching some video footage from my neighborhood’s Lord Ganesh procession which involved lots of music and impressive dancing! Thanks for reading!
