Artist from UK

    …and UK here refers to the Indian state, Uttarakhand and not United Kingdom as you thought on first instance. :D

    Well, she had a pretty smile and her jewellery and the attire were just stunning! Look at that big nose ring she is wearing! I was told that on special occasions, according to the tradition and culture, married women in Uttarakhand wear that big nose ring which is called the ‘Nath’. Black beaded garland on their neck is considered to be the pious symbol of leading a married life for a woman. The Golden necklace which she is wearing is known as Hansuli.

    This National Youth Festival being held in Amritsar proved to be a glorious event for me. I came to know a lot about different cultures from my own country. I met people from far away lands and interacting with them was such a delight. I am thankful to all the students and artists who made this occasion a memorable one for me and who tolerated me around them and let me shoot to my heart’s content. :-)
