Content Overload

I am keeping my word (at my father's funeral, I promised to keep his website running) and continue to add a lot of new content to Kamat's Potpourri. Here are some of the new stuff I've been working on:

  • Yama's Calling -- a new section exploring death in Hinduism; includes a FAQ and pictures of last rites.
  • The Festival of Colors -- Celebration of the Holi festival; includes depiction of Holi in Indian art.
  • The Palanquins -- A delighful picture collection culled from Kamat archives. This is the last consignment father sent before his death.
  • Supportive Kids -- This is the penultimate section father worked for Kamat's Potpourri and shows how children in India help the parents in household and financial matters. Includes graphic photographs of children at work.
  • Kamat Goes to a Cock Fight -- Pictures of a gambling sport in rural India that father took great pains to photograph.
  • Lots of new pictures have been added to PictureSearch bringing the total number of searchable pictures to over 6800.
