I apologize for the long delay between this and my last post.
See the young woman holding the calico kitten? This is Soundarya Ravichandran, who long-time readers first met back in July of last year. Sandy is the whole reason that I came with Tryskuit to India this trip. I came to photograph her wedding. You know that fellow, Bill Hess, who lives in the parallel universe to mine?
He has been so busy trying to blog her wedding that I, Grahamn Kracker, have had no time to devote to this blog.
But I am blogging now. Sandy just retrieved the kitten from a little alcove above her.
Sandy is ecstactic! Once the business surrounding her upcoming wedding slows down, she decides that she will adopt the calico.
The next day, I peek into the alcove and this is what I see. I am struck by the love of the mother and the preciousness of life - and by the danger, by the indifference of nature towards the well-being of any individual life; by the desire of the mother to protect her babies in the face of such a world, by the desire of the babies to live, to grow and gain experience.
This story will continue.
