Grand Diwali Mela in Los Angeles

Several devotees & members (Rajiv & Gita Sharma, Anand Rao, Jai Krishna, Divya Drsti, Julio, & Caru) travelling to Los Angeles this weekend to perform the same Ramayana we did at our recent Festival of India Sept.18th. The venue is Excelsior High in Cerritos, which is said to have 1,500 seats.

Our dear friend Roshan Khandpur is a committee member for this grand Diwali Mela, and made the invitations.

The main contingent leaves Friday afternoon in a rented mini van with five passengers, the 9' X 12' rear projection screen lashed on top, and all the costumes. Some will stay with Roshan in his home and others in a nice Motel on Pioneer Boulevard.

Richard Franklin, who played the role of Ravan in September, could not make the trip. Thus Caru Das will fulfill the double roles of being lead priest in the Diwali puja on stage from 4 pm - 5 pm, and then performing as Ravan in the drama 6 pm - 7 pm. What else is new?
