Passage to India (part 2)
Part two of our lecture series on India travels off the beaten path in pursuit of wild fibers and more. We begin with an extraordinary visit to Gandhi's ashram in Ahmedabad to learn about the history of khadi (homespun cotton) cloth. We join an elephant temple festival in Kerala on our pursuit to visit with local weavers. Finally, we go to Varanasi where some of India's most extreme rituals and elegant cloth is produced. Until you have floated down the Ganges at sunrise, everything else is "India Lite."
