Beautiful details!Visiting from Mandarin Orange Monday (MoM).My MoM entryHave a great week ahead!
What wonderful photographs of Durga during this period of Navratri. I'm finishing up a five month visit to Jaipur - wanted to much to go to Baroda to see the dandiya dancing and festivities but too poor with purchasing my air ticket back to San Francisco. I did have a wonderful 68th birthday celebration here in Jaipur. Was in Mumbai for four months from Dec 2011 - Apr 2012. Hopefully, I'll return in 6 months after my first grandchild is born. I plan on studying Hindi while I'm home!!My MYM is at: http://rnsane.blogspot.in/2012/10/mellow-yellow-monday-196-indian-lady.html#links
