It is Election Day today, so the town has closed down. Feels like Sunday all over again. Mangla told us there will be a lot of police in town today doing checks for terrorists (they do seem to enjoy doing those), so we’re going to lurk around the ashram and river to avoid unnecessary unnecessariness ;)
We had chai and jagarry (a form of unprocessed sugar cane which is meant to be relatively healthy) chapattis for breakfast. “Chai, chillum, chapatti, chalo Parvati”. Well, since we’re off the smoking, 2 out of 3 isn’t bad.
I noticed at Komal’s shop that KitKats are called KriKets. It’s the little differences.... As I was sat practicing my Hindi with him, I saw a Westerner in jogging gear run past us. That’s a first. I think he’s missing the point that parikramar is a holy walk not a holy run ;) Trust the West to speed things up. Must.... do.... more....! Whatever works I guess. Just enjoy ;)
