Only in India

One of our good friend's who lives in New Delhi sends us supplies from India every now and then. I get such a kick out of the packaging. Someone in his office actually sews a linen fabric around the package. For all my readers who live in India, is this commonly done? Can you imagine if anyone would take that kind of time here in the US?



We peal off multiple layers before we unveil our supplies.



another layer...



another layer...plus some rudimentary clear thin wrapping inside before we unearth our Indian "gems"

Again, yes, I'm easily amused by all things Indian. And I am constantly teased about it too. =)

I remember when my mother used to send things to her family she would put the package in a pillow case and then sew it up!

Thanks for looking through my window. I'm happy to discover your blog and meet another dancer and India lover!

Shireena, did you consider putting a Followers widget on your site? It makes it easy for those who want to keep up with you to do so...
