Monkey Man's Sunday 160

Just to tell
There's Indian version
Of Halloween
Called Tesu Jhenji
Where kids carry Monster
Tesu and Jhenji
His lantern wife
Asking for money.
Unity in Diversity

I would throw the chain and lock on the gate in India as well as I do here in Detroit.

have a wonderful day mona!

I loved that. Thanks, Mona.

The only scary part was the guy dancing with a straight razor in his hands. Scary for the customer, that it.

Happy Halloween!

Mona, the little girl leading the pack could be your daughter, she looks so much like I picture you as a child. I love the music the little imps dance too. Cool video!

I would venture to guess that Tesu Jhenji has been around a lot longer than our Halloween. Great 160, Mona. Thanks for being a part of the Sunday 160.

Oh to be a child again and be part of that festivity, loved your words, adored the music, gorgeous scenery and will have to watch this movie. Thanks for sharing. Agree we are after all created from the same source and nurtured by Mother Earth,

Happy celebrating "Oneness and diversity.

Cool! And it's on the same day?

Love how we all share similar festivities. The world is so small now and that brings us closer. Isn't Jhenji what Islam calls the devil?

Beautiful family. And Halloween apparently crosses cultures. When my kids were in high school and college, they acted like Tesu and Jhenji all the time.
