As well as celebrating Eid, today we are also celebrating Rath Yatra, a festival that involves moving deities Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshana on a chariot.
Sunil is never as happy as when there is a puja going on, so the staff have made this chariot for him which he will take out this evening and show all the locals.
Thanks to everyone at Sanderstead United Reformed Church in the UK, who have been supporting us for such a long time - http://www.surc.org.uk/
This tapestry by Ipshita who lives at Lula Bari, our girls home here, was done especially by her for Audrey Earp, (David's mum) who has donated it to the church in thanks for their support of shuktara.
Thank you to everyone involved, especially Ipshita for the beautiful hand work.
