In Vrindavan, if you want to mail a package, it needs to be covered in sack-cloth.

You have to get them stitched up.

I especially like this one, pieced together from two different kinds of cloth.

This is a package I sent to Mike, before its journey. I’d have loved to see it afterwards. I think it included a card, a pack of instant chai, an earthen disposable chai mug (which did not make it in one piece), some masala flavored doritos, a carved Ganesha statue…not sure what else.

  1. Similar experience last week in Bangalore – I loved the women sitting at the sewing table. The Indian postal system is much cheaper than many other countries!!
