WED 2013: “Namaskaram”

Namaskaram

 

Join the palms of your two hands and point your fingers towards the sky.  In India, this simple gesture, “namaskaram”, is more than just a greeting; it is a sign of respect.  Yesterday, as part of World Environment Day and Raxa Collective’s food crisis initiative, I returned to the local homeless shelter to donate additional meals to the residents, and although I am separated from these individuals by a language barrier, I am able to communicate with them through a simple gesture of namaskaram.
