Share Your Thoughts

We are trying something a little different at India Currents that we’d like to share with you. 

Every month we will be sharing feature photos of people, events and daily life around the Bay Area so you, our readers, get a glimpse of what is happening within the community.

We are starting off with scenes from November – a family celebrating Thanksgiving, an early morning un-Thanksgiving ceremony, a dance rehearsal, and much more!

Look out for our Photos of the Month post and let us know what you think!

Is there an event you’re planning? Is something interesting happening in your neighborhood? India Currents wants to be there! Contact us at editor@indiacurrents.com.
