News from Nils in Bangalore

Nils, my GSE homestay host from the Diamond District Rotary club, celebrated his birthday recently with a family lunch in a forest near Nrityagram (which translates as "dancing village") outside Bangalore.  This village of dance was set up by Protima Bedi, a well known dancer in a classical Indian style called Odissi.  Her dance school continues on.  For more information: 

You see a cool photo of Durga, a goddess with many arms, nicely and artistically framed.  Check out those stone steps!
