    That turban worn by the Nihang in picture 5 on the occasion of Baba Deep Singh martyrdom day is really amazing. It must be a feat to tie it every morning and stay with it all day.

  2. Lawrence Castelino says:

    Funeral of Bal Thackeray. Nearly 1.2 million attended the funeral procession. Can any other leader in India or anywhere in the world would be able to attract such a big crowd? Bal Thackeray was a unique leader, from cartoonist to politician, he was always controversial, liked and hated at the same time.
