| Camera Monkey Runs Out of Film !|
My mother, now in Honavar told me on the telephone that Kamat Sr. has run out of film! "In the last ten days, he has been on an photographic rampage!" she said.
My parents have discovered a Hero-pillar (not just a Hero-stone, but a Hero-pillar) with an elaborate inscription. They also paid visits to the homes of scholar Gowrish Kaikini, Yakshagana maestro Keremane Shivaram Hegde, historian G.S. Dixit, and met many other intellectuals in the last week.
Kamat also got an fine opportunity to photograph a cock-fight, many Ganapati making professionals, and few newly
discovered archaeological artifacts.
All this in the last ten days. No wonder father ran out of film!

Salon: The Salt Wars of India -- "Salt is a powerful symbol of purity, tradition and freedom for Indians. But today, it has come to symbolize something darker: the catastrophic consequences of adhering to tradition in the face of scientific knowledge."
