Alright, I promise this is the last parade I shall write about on this blog- this year atleast! Unless ofcourse, some other eye-catching, merry pageant crosses my path:)
I arrived late at the India Day Parade in Manhattan unfortunately, and missed out on the `Masala cruise' t-shirts et. al. but did manage to catch performances by local artistes, Johnny Lever's jokes and Priyanka Chopra's rather uninspired lines(: There's nothing quite like snacking on chaat and listening to the latest Bollywood hits on the streets on New York while a light, constant drizzle makes a birds nest of your hair(:
Here are some pics from my friend's camera- thanks Neena!
I'm glad the MC remembered to thank the sanitation department- the after-show was messy and embarassing- I lost count of the number of chicken bones strewed on the street, vestiges of tandoori masala glowing brightly. Ewww! And I'm vegetarian.
