Festival of India: Ratha Yatra Parade
The rain stayed away all day this past Saturday, June 9th as the Festival of India got under way in Manhattan. Lord Jagannath’s Ratha Yatra Parade commenced at 5th Avenue and 59th Street, came all the way down 5th Avenue and ended in Washington Square Park. In past years I’ve helped pull the carts of Lord Jagannath (the Lord of the Universe, a manifestation of Krishna) his brother Balarama, and their sister Subhadra, but this year, owing to a nasty heel spur, I and my family met the parade in the park.
