I'm working for HELP International as a Country Director in Hyderabad, India from May-August 2010.

June 30, 2010

While getting ready for the day this morning, we heard this loud loud instrument playing outside somewhere. Having heard a similar instrument in a band last week from 1-4am for a wedding procession in full acoustics, I dismissed it as another wedding procession until Mandy told us to look out our front window. This teenage boy was standing there with his oboe-type instrument, blasting his music at our door with his ornamented cow companion. I'm assuming he is some holy man who goes door to door for money. I got a few photos and video of him so all you readers can get a taste of what we saw this morning as we gazed down from our window.

  1. Kristen, I'm hoping you get this in time. My daughter, Amy Alva, is scheduled to arrive in Hyderabad Rajiv Gandhi Airport July 1, 2010 at at about 5 a.m. She hadn't recieved a current phone number from you or an address, to get to you. If you have her email...could you please contact her. Thanks for allowing her to be a small part of Help International.
    Her Mom,
