U.P. HNT



And: What the Hell Happened to Your Hair?

On my way to Agra this year, I learned that there are some places in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh (UP)where women, when going outside, always keep their heads covered with the paluu of their saree. In fact, in the village of Farukahbad, women do not go out in the streets alone...ever, because the men harrass them incessantly.

The end of the paluu is always a lot different than the rest of the saree, as you can see! I got this saree in Mangalore, isn't it lovely? Oh, sorry about my hair, it's sticking up all weird...I don't know why. Here I am hiding behind the paluu like the women do when they are saying, "Get awayyyy from meeeee!"


Ok but lookit here, I am an American woman, and I would not stand for that sort of harrassing such as they have in Farukahbad, and I like my hair, and I dont wanna cover it, OK? So here's what I have to say to all you Farukahbad men. "Look what you have done to my hair! This is all your fault!"

Happy HNT Everyone!

**UPDATE**I have been captured by Newblogger. They made me change my password, and now they keep telling me that my password(s) incorrect! So...until that gets sorted out, no comments from me til then! Sorry! As my mom would say, "they just couldnt leave well enough alone, could they?"


Go see what Mister Ratburn is up to!

You sure are able to keep your integrity, even Fa..bad. You must have a strong will.

Once again great pictures.

My daughter, blond haired, do you think she became fed up with all the men that had to touch her hair, when in India. She's taller than most men there and when she reacted furiously, they ran away

PS. I know where to click after this comment
