India Trip, Day 19: sinjaara

November 1 (Thu) - Day 19:  sinjaara

Tomorrow is Karwa Chauth and I miss Texas suddenly.  Last year until I was in Texas, a group of women got together on the day before the festival (which is called sinjaara).  We applied mehendi on each other's hand, brought a snack pot luck, talked about our husband, cracked jokes, and planned what we'd all wear for the festival the next day.

But here...

... my saasuji and I were alone at home, and I just put mehendi on her hands.  There was no such get together HERE IN INDIA despite the number of women in this close residential area.  UNBELIEVABLE.

Looks like Indians outside India celebrate Indian festivals with much more enthusiasm?
