Monday Mellow Yellows and Orange You Glad It's Monday - Bright Yellow Sari and Bangles - September 30, 2013

Well, October 3rd is my 69th birthday and the beginning of my final two months 
in India.  Four months have gone by in a flash.  It seems fitting that my post
for today is of a lovely friend, clad in a gorgeous yellow sari, wearing bangles
and lovely jewelry and with hennaed hands.  The occasion was a special
Hindu holiday, Karva Chauth, when married women fast from sunrise to 
moonrise for the safety and longevity of their husbands.  And, no, there is
no corresponding holiday when men fast for the safety and longevity of 
their wives!!!

I am participating in


Add your yellow and orange photos to join in the fun!

    Your friend's jewellery and hennaed hands look lovely.
    Enjoy the next two months in India.
