Pied Piper of Bandra

Thursday night, Bandra had it's own Pied Piper.  Kabir; a Buddhist monk.

After a lovely all-you-can-eat delicious Chinese dinner, we were walking home.  Kabir noticed that he was leading five lovely lady expats down the street.

It's common here not to walk on the sidewalks.

It's also common for everyone to stare at each other.  It's especially common to stare at any expats.

So, as usual we were walking single file in the street.  He wondered what others were thinking seeing us, given the above norms.  

At one point he kicked his feet up, jig style, and said he looked like the Pied Piper.  Pretty funny image strolling down the suburbs of Mumbai.  A monk followed by five ladies.

He's been helping several of us to improve our meditation practices.  And with this help, he's definitely the kind of Pied Piper I would follow.
