Last week was the celebration of successful businesses and all things Gujarati with visitors from all over the world. The end of the week was a huge flower show down by the river.
It took us awhile to get to the right place after a rickshaw ride where we drove over a half finished highway until there was a huge barricade and the driver had to take us back over the bumpy, dusty road. We went to see the work of a friend at Cept who is in the Masters of Landscape program. Here is two of the flower sculptors Brianca designed and produced.
Below is the new Chief Minister of Gujarat and the peacock flower sculpture, my favorite!
Lovely sights and work, but we thought highly unlikely that these flowers would last a day in the ferocious Indian sun without continuous watering.
As we walked to the exit to catch a rickshaw, this amazing man caught our eye. I have no idea who or what he is nor his story but I wanted a picture. I requested a picture, knowing quite well that he would agree. Here it is for you my blogger friends. If any of you can figure out a story about this most interesting man. . . .please do tell! David called him “an Indian Santa Claus!”
Ta ta for now from Incredible India!
