Lakshmi’s birthday. Now, here was a take-charge girl. Lakshmi began issuing directives regarding her birthday several days ahead of time. And as I mentioned in a previous blog as well as on Twitter, Indians take any sort of celebration to new dimensions (and we had a spate of birthdays there in week three). The fact that we were in an ashram was not going to make any sort of a difference for this 25 year old. Lakshmi is one of the most photogenic women I have ever met, so the choice of this photos is mildly ironic, she would probably have a good sense of humor about it though, as she issued clear instructions that no one was supposed to put any of the two sheet cakes she had ordered (yes, vegetarian) on her face. I am of the opinion that the directive was ordered to ensure caking, but I may be a cynic. Either way, she was quite clearly “caked.” And didn’t even wreck her make up or her amazingly outrageous sari.

Happy Birthday Lakshmi!
