well last weekend my sister and her husband had a puja (Hindu blessing ceremony) at their new home. The middle pic is my sister, daughter Mira, and hubby Pulkit. Top pic is my sister and a young guest drinking mango lassi, a traditional Indian drink which I made from fresh mangoes and yogurt. Bottom pic is the Hindu priest conducting the puja, which (amongst other things) involved lighting a fire in the living room, and smashing an entire pumpkin in the doorway!
It was a really fun occasion. No bad spirits in the house now! xxooo
