Monda Market

Last winter we visited my parents in India. My daughter had to do a school project about the meaning behind certain rituals in Hindu ceremonies. We were going to have a Puja (religious prayer ceremony) at home for my Dad’s 70th birthday and so we went to the big market in the city (Monda market) to buy items for the puja. I took my camera and made some photos. Funnily almost everyone wanted to see the back of the camera to see themselves but alas it was a film camera so I was not able to show them their photos immediately. I finally got around to getting these rolls developed last month. I am not sure why but I am always tentative about sharing photos that I take for myself, as if hearing commentary about them takes something away from the experience of actually making the photographs. I need to get over myself.

Anyway, here they are. I hope you like them.

xo, Rashmi
