Odissi under a Spreading Bhodi Tree

Sutra Dance Theatre

Last night we were treated to a radiant Odissi performance by Sutra Dance Theatre, the fabulous Indian classical dance ensemble of master danceur Ramli Ibrahim, beneath a gorgeous wisdom tree on a lovely estate just outside Pondicherry. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Blasts from the Past

... because the idiocy of manliness is an evergreen topic.


... because Canada and the US will celebrate their Thanksgiving holidays and, regrettably and preventably, not 1-cook-in-10 will serve a decent turkey.


... because everyday is Mother's Day.


... because the American Dream seems but a distant memory, given the country's dominant ethos of small-mindedness.


... to remind us that not every mix of Tibetans and Western spiritual seekers has to be nauseating.


... to celebrate the new edition of Infinite Vision published in India.


... reprised because military strategy seems more cruel and less effective than ever -- and certainly there is a better way.


... because cars are ruining Pondicherry, where I live. How badly are they fucking up your Indian town?


... reprinted because more-and-more people seem want to understand the gift economy. (Yeah!)
