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.
Here’s a few more Grass Castles. All pics were taken in Vrindavan, 2008.

I am preparing for an artist talk on Indra’s Cloud for Brandeis University’s Women’s Studies Research Center. It will take place this Thursday, March 3rd, at 6:00 PM. While getting the slide show together, I started looking at photos from Vrindavan again. Here are a few favorites!
