Ganesha Fever

The past few days I've noticed a feverish mood in the local markets as I walk along, with dozens of stands and shops selling little elephants.  Some are in bright colors, while others are made of clay. All come in a variety of sizes, from 10" or so  to 25 feet high.  And all this frenzy is just a hint of what's to come I'm told.  

NS Ramaswamy

I was at the local cafe reading the Times of India today, well, like I do everyday, and came across an interesting article about a guy you've likely -- like me -- never heard of, who passed away recently.

I thought there was a huge culture shock when I first got to India, yet I'm now finding that a lot of what's different is also the same.
