On New Year’s Day, they waited in line with great excitement to enter the much revered Sri Meenakshi Temple in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India. Since foreigners were not permitted to enter this part of the temple, I gloried in unexpected glowing smiles outside. This sweet face was one of the many happy faces beckoning my lens. ©2012 Valerie Rosen; All rights reserved.
