I stopped to check the Lungi's hanging outside his store, and like sometimes happens in India, found a new friend.

What a man. Warm soft hand shake and hart & eyes to follow.

I just looked at him in the photo and melted, sinking into these eyes and calm face, just relaxed and gazing.

Eventually I bought a vermilion cotton lungi with a margins of a woven yellow silky ribbon and had it made into a fishermen pant two months later by Ajai tailor in Maharshtra.

Today, while chanting Kirtan at a Yoga studio here in California his town's market street, sops and sellers came up my mind. I can't remember his name, but can feel him. Now the least I can do is have him here.
