Gosh, Gareth!

You are knocking my socks of with such a colorful selection of pictures.

I have never witnessed such an event, but it is overflowing with joy, and must be thrilling, even if strange!

Gareth this is spectacular as an education!

Totally new to me!

“My Lord and Master has heard my prayer.
And all my affairs have been resolved”

That seems as if they are ready at any moment to die ....either for the cause or because they are at peace with themselves and God!


Yes, he’s braving the rain, but he has a very bold sword too! Interesting symbolism. The colors are special. That 0
purple color was extraordinarily difficult to obtain in centuries past. In the times of the Roman Empire it was worth more than gold. A commoner, even if he had the wealth, would not dare wear it, for fear of execution, it was so noble!

That sword gives me the willies. An excellent assortment of images, some almost seem too colorful. Some men are barefoot . So it is not too cold? And they seem to be wearing makeup on their eyes. Nice crowd scene at the end. And the buses carry love poetry on the front.

We are trying to remove the “Likes” capability as it diverts from actual comment!

I only managed to remove the word “Like” but not the icon!

Still thanks for the acknowledgement. These are lively and unique pictures and forced me to learn a lot more about history of the Raj!
