In Venice…

KFri 12.5 Kathmandu DejaCrossathmandu Boutique host a photography exhibition featuring Deja Cross.

The Artist, tell us of the journery…”Having dreamed about going to Maha Kumbh Mela for years, getting dengue fever in Thailand just months before the festival, and wondering if it was a good idea to travel again so soon… the holy gathering was only weeks away, when I HEARD HER CALLING. It wasn’t a request, her message was clear, it was time to come home to the Motherland. A five month journey, with Ma as my guide and sadhus by my side, capturing images of India, the spirit, beauty and humanity, and setting them free.”

The event will be catered by Kali Wnuck, SavRaw ‘Local Farm Box’    Chai served by Reena Gauchan
