What a week of extremes! And I don’t say that lightly. After the riots, pushing to get the show up and trying to get back to some semblance of normality, the local Shri Kanagathurkkai Amman Hindu Temple hosted its annual Chariot Festival. Reports put the no of attendees at somewhere between 5-10,000 people from all over London, which is quite a wide estimate.
But then, some lovely comments/review about the show have been posted online. I leave you with a few:

See over for a peek at the Chariot Festival as I encountered it when I stepped outside to find a line of men wearing lungis rolling along the middle of the street holding coconuts. When I said it’s been a week of extremes, I meant it – humanity sure is a funny species.. All photos © Miranda Gavin.
