Photographs from India

 

As my cousin and I walked onto the beach, a group of three transexuals (Also known as ‘Hijra’ or ‘Eunuch’) approached us. They are said to process magical spiritual powers that can used to either bless you or curse you. Most people fear this community as they can be quite indecent (flashing their private parts) if you do not pay them. They are said to bring good luck and fertility. My cousin and I were to pay them some money (100 Rs) and they blessed me with a good and prosperous life. It was SO cool.

I wanted to take some pictures with them, and they carefully deliberated, and then decided against it – for fear that I would sell their picture to a newspaper. They ran away. And this was the picture I got!

      Thanks Michelle πŸ™‚
      Yeah I love this theme so much! It’s exactly what I wanted – minimalist and clean.
      I wish we could change the colour scheme a little bit though – I would like the title of the blog to be in a different colour other than orange.

        There is an upgrade that you can buy from wordpress that allows CSS editing of themes. If you buy that upgrade you can customize colors.
