Conversations at Jogini Shrine.
12:43 - 13th April 2012, the first day of the Vashisht Village three day Mela (festival).
The Vashisht Mela is a massive social occasion, when people who might not meet often during a year, get to speak with each other & later eat together.
Since the Goddess demands peace & quiet in her seat of power, arguments and shouting are not permitted.
nota bene: during other times of the year villagers will come here to sleep awhile.
