Hello Everyone, There is so much focus on India since India is the GUEST OF HONOUR in the World's largest BOOK FAIR held now in Frankfurt. So much has been happening and i hear only great things about India, be it Literature or all our Great Musicians, dancers, photographers or Painters, artists or Films etc. Many of the top names are here in every field, and every newspaper or tv channel is obviously highligthing India. Right now i feel so proud to wear a saree and bindi and show off that i am an Indian! Ha ha .... And i am also in these activities showcasing our young children in dance and having sari tying sessions.....i have never ever felt so happy to tie a sari on anyone and to see the happiness on te faces of these people who seem to love India and its culture. We also had a wonderful experience of keeping kumkum on the foreheads of some 5000 non indians on a single evening for a beautiful musical, dance show from India called BHARTI....which was also a big hit last weekend!And how the men and women came to us wanting to keep that tilak on their forehead! I really wanted to share this feeling with all of you....being in Germany and an alien culture , but findng a recognition and acceptance for our own Indian culture. .....many a moment it has brought tears to my eyes! And this continues till this weekend.....SO LETS ALL FEEL PROUD TO BE INDIANS!
