Our world

 
I was pleasantly surprised to see 'Vasudeva' in traditional attire singing devotional songs dedicated to Krishna. The founder of this religious tradition is believed to be Krishna, who is the son of Vasudeva, thus his name is Vāsudeva, he belonged to the Satvata tribe. Very few from the tribe now continue this tradition.

  16. Another interesting slice-of-life in your part of the world. I've never heard of any of this so I enjoy such photos very much. I know that more and more people here are abandoning religious traditions. I wonder if that is so in India also.
