A washout festival

An Indian festival was held within Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Markets. I anticipated something like bhangra, maybe an Indian fashion parade as well as an assortment of foods from different parts of India.


The day however, was washed out and although there were a number of food stands (though nothing from South India), there appeared to be little else happening. When a band did start playing, the song sounded no different from any other western music except for the Hindi lyrics.

Maybe I didn’t stay long enough?
