The Wonders Of Ancient India

India was the subject of one of the embassy events back in late September in the Horticulture Building.


Art, landscape photography, and food were all part of the event, as was music.


Clothing was also on display, with mixes of rich colours.


This is called the Odissi Dance. Performance in one way or another is a big part of these events, with different performers throughout a given day. I will have the last set of these Ottawa Welcomes The World events later on in December.

  18. @Revrunner: this time I didn't partake of the food- curry would have the same effect for me.

    @Tanya: I assume so, but it's a bit too hot for my tastes!
