Enough of snow and ice.  Let’s see a party.  India-style.  

Recently, my colleague Maria and I photographed a birthday party for Indian twins, age 1 year, in the Dallas, Texas, area.  Perhaps this is grander than you might expect for a first year birthday party, even for twins.  In Indian culture (we are told), milestone birthdays (1st, 5th, 10th, 20th, etc), call for big celebrations.  If you were raised in West Texas, as I was, you might not know that Indian men and women, in their turbans and saris, are happy to party all night long… and loud!  They rocked! 

You can see more photos of this event and others, at Maria’s website

Please let us know what you think about what we see.
