so today we went to the memphis india fair at the agricenter, and let me just say: underwhelming. if we had come to spend money (on cheesy paintings or on some admittedly GORGEOUS saris) or to eat (we were dumb and ate just before we went), we would have been golden. stupid us, we went to see some cultural performances and learn a little about the melting pot that is india. we got none of that. i had been hoping for a memphis-based version of WASAC (wellesley association of south asian cultures) and their yearly shruti laya performance of dance, poetry, music, film, and awesomeness, so i came in perhaps a tad biased. once again, wellesley trumps the real world. put me back in my bubble.
