India: Eight



The Monday of my second week in India was a holiday, Gandhi Day. We went to Dr. Mukkamala's home in Vijayawada for the afternoon. Throughout the day beggars would walk up to the houses and play songs or have performing cows. After they would open their capes and wait for your donation. This gentlemen played us a few songs, and we asked him to bring back his cow, Dr. Mukkamala said that they normally have them all decorated in paints and flowers. He came back but he was cow-less.
