Eshitas Wedding

Last weekend we were invited in Delhi to the wedding of  Eshita & Mukul. We went there for two days with Abhijeet and Nareen.

It was very interesting to see, how a typical Indian wedding in Delhi could be. All the ceremonies are very different than in Germany. And it takes some time until you are married. Eshita looked so beautiful in her wedding dress.

It was an amazing and wonderful evening. I think, now it is Eshitas turn to come to Germany for a typical wedding.


Convocation Week, Exhibition

Last week was a big exhibition on the campus at NID.  Everybody could see the work what the students have done during the year. Those, who convocated this year showed their work on special displays.

We also had the chance to present our university. The foreigners got their own place to exhibit.  We built  frame cubes of metal in which we put one poster for each university. We also showed the work we did during our time at NID.

The people were very interested and  came to see how the Design-Work  is going in other countries.

All in all it was a great week with a lot of experiences and it was interesting to see the “Indian Design”.



Prepairing convocation week.


Fabric Structure “Weaving”

Today we started our first course in Textile Design. We are learning the weaving methods step by step. It takes a long time and you need elevated concentration. But we have fun in this work and we`re looking forward to our first woven lines tomorrow.

The last weekend on our trip we went with Jahnavee to Mysore, 160 km south-west of Bangalore. It was an amazing trip with lots of great impressions. We went to the “Maharaja Palace”, which we`ve also seen at night with all the beatiful lights like 1001 nights. Then we visited the “Sri-Chamundeshvari-Tempel” and the “Nandi-Bull” on “Chamundi Hill”, 1065 m high. Some pictures were also made on the great, colourful “Devarja-Market” in the center of Mysore.



A little “western life” in India.

M.G. Road, Botanical garden, Art Gallery, cooking at Jahnavees appartment and a special sightseeing tour with rikshaws.
