Good Stuff #2
To the living churches of an ancient kingdom. The ancient Aksumite Kingdom, now a part of Ethiopia, was among the first in the world to adopt Christianity as the official state religion. Lalibela, a town in the Lasta Amhara region, renowned for its rock-cut monolithic churches, is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has the best-known cluster of these living churches. But even far-flung regions like Tigray contain some of the most magnificent murals of the Aksumite Kingdom.
It’s been 2+ months for most of us in lockdown, in isolation. This distancing has made us reminisce about the good times with our loved ones the most. I have thankfully been quarantined at home, with my family, and I have been thinking about what I miss the most. I miss the seemingly everyday occurrences, like having bun maska at my favourite Shahpur Jat tapri, window shopping for the thrill of trying out new outfits, people-watching at a cafe. Also, (un?) surprisingly, I miss the buzz of the city.
Chronobiology. Our biological clocks. Sleeping troubles. And living truly timeless.
Hope you all have been well :) I am super stoked to be sharing with you Good Stuff Journal’s new project, “Everyday People/People’s Everyday”, a series of one on one live sessions, the first of which we are hosting this Sunday, 24th May, 8 PM IST. If you have any questions about pursuing photography as a career or the changing scenario in India, do revert to this email. Come hang with us with a cuppa’ coffee on Instagram!
