Work

In the USA, we are celebrating Labor Day; a long holiday weekend for workers to enjoy the end of summer and gear up for the coming autumn. In India, labor wears many assorted hats. Here is my tribute to the laborers of India that takes so many varied forms.

This man produces the most delicious flat breads in Kerala, porottas! He never stops moving. Notice how tidy his stand is.

Notice the stick placed by the shoes: it is for chasing away mischievous monkeys!

No matter what your labor involves or where you call home, I hope that you too, can take a break!

About ninagrandiose

I am based in NYC but travel regularly to India and Mexico. Both of these countries feel like home. In India I scour the country in search of fabulous textiles to incorporate into my clothing designs. I sit back and let the ambiance and wonder of India seep into my consciousness so I can be inspired to write about what India is for me. I bring a limited number of people to India on exclusive and intimate tours of my favorite hangouts. In Mexico I take in the natural beauty that surrounds me and dance the night away. I constantly give thanks for all this and am pleased to share it all with you.
