Sculptures of Khajuraho - Erotica 2
The Kama Sutra continues - a wide variety of positions are on display across the temple walls! Here you can see the carnal act being performed from behind, a 'reverse cowgirl' (!), a 69 position, fellatio, and a foursome!
Meeting Georgio Armani
He took me to some material stores which also sold scarves and clothing. To cut a long story short, after trying on a few things in the narrow and cramped storage room behind the shop, I ended up ordering a raw silk jacket and pants to be made. 'Georgio Armani', as the tailor was referred, was summoned (by bike) from his home and brought in to take the measurements. I was told that the outfit would be delivered to my hotel later that night and if I wasn’t happy, I need not pay and take the goods. I had a great afternoon chatting to these people who had a great sense of humour.
A Unique Memory
True to his word, he came to collect me and on the back of his bike we went back to the store. Unfortunately my time was limited to 20mins due to going to see the sound and light show. Again this man in white truly amazed me with what he told me. He was going to put together this little pouch for me with words that would apparently change my life. He gave me a letter to read from an Italian family for which he had done the same, and their gratitude. My biggest regret, that I never got back to pick up this little pouch. At the end of my evening, it was late and the thought of travelling back to this store late at night on my own was probably not a good idea. The experience I had with this man and his words had a marked effect which lasted and lingered with me for many days.
Khajuraho Old Village
On your journey from the Jain enclosure to the Hindu temples of the eastern group, it is well worth having a wander through the narrow streets of the old village. A young lad of perhaps 12 or 13 attached himself to us while we were there, and proceeded to give us a tour, showing us the dividing lines between areas belonging to different castes, usually marked out in concrete, as well as the different wells and temples belonging to each group. It certainly opened our eyes, showing that although in theory and in law, the caste system has been abolished, it continues nonetheless in practice.
Given the events which occasioned my warning tip, I was a little wary that he might start asking for money, and sadly my suspicions prevented me from really communicating with him, but when we reached the lake and said we were going a different way, he merely wished us a pleasant walk and said goodbye. This made me feel horribly guilty, as I suspect he just wanted to practise his English.
During the evening people go out to the Durga Temples to worship the godess. The festival is in the month of october.
Just go for the music and the atmosphere, maybe some local guide can show you the way...
