Last Sunday, we celebrated Easter.
Yesterday was Earth Day.
Now I'm headed to the International Indian Film Awards (IIFA) weekend - the "Bollywood Oscars" in Tampa, Florida. IFFA was originally scheduled for June, but it was rescheduled for April due to crowds and weather - the Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 through to November 30.
This is the first time that IIFA has been held in the United States - so it is a milestone for both countries.
I find it fascinating that the three intertwined areas of my life - my faith, my environmental work, and my interest in Indian film - all have major celebrations this week.
The wrinkle in the schedule is that the Indian general elections are being held in Mumbai at this time, so many Bollywood celebrities who might otherwise be at IIFA will not be attending. These Lok Sabha elections are held once every five years to elect members to the lower house of the Parliament of India. Lok means "people" and Sabha means "assembly" in Sanskrit. These are important elections as they also determine who will be the next Prime Minister of India.
Despite this wrinkle, I'm looking forward to seeing what IIFA has in store.
See you there!
