Week 20 - Returning to Holi

Today's newsletter, as well as Thursday's entry, are coming a day late due to technical difficulties --- the entry was stuck in The Archive's system and remained in limbo for a day.

This week, the audio and the video release swapped places. I guess we were so enthusiastic over the video! This week's video is the first (of five) in the Holi-series, featuring a splendid festival of colors from Shyamasundar Mandir, Radha-kunda, from our footage from spring 2005.
