I got this beautiful bag as I left. The images of Lord Venkateshwara of Tirupati Temple in Andhra Pradesh. Usually promotional bags of this quality when given away at conventions are faded and lean on color, but with the richness of Hindu culture there's no way to cut corners and the result is much more vivid then this mobile phone photo I took.

It contained a laminated card of lord and goddess avatars, a sealed bag ith 'Namkin' (salty snacks such as turmeric puffed rice, roasted nuts and dhanya leafs), a ladu (sweet deep fried garbanzo bean flour ball) and vermilion powder for the tikkha ( the dot marked on the forehead center)
