This Summer, coincidentally perhaps, I’m enjoying flashes of India in America! Last week, I marveled at this amazing poster at one of the leading home decor shops of America. There were exotic products from my country – bright, lively, vibrant – reminding me of street bazaars of New Delhi.
And today, Indian culture, heritage and food was celebrated at Downtown Minneapolis in an event called IndiaFest. It really felt like being in India there, with tantalizing aroma of Indian cuisine, classical dances and crafts. I even saw things I didn’t know about India.
(Story being conveyed through paintings- ancient form of storytelling)
At the fest, it was India everywhere. I felt proud that even the next-gen Indians participated and perfected classical dance moves.
It was fun strolling and reliving India in America. We met up with some friends, bought mouthwatering street food and had a wonderful day at IndiaFest.
If I see another flash of India, will let you know. To know about the festival, read here.
Stay well, friends!
