Gokarna`da Hayat fotolar \ Pics from Gokarna

 

Gokarna geleneklere bagli eski ve kutsal bir Hindu sehri. Burda yasayan nerdeyse herkes Brahmin yani dini gorevlilerin kasti. Insanlari dogustan isaretleyen kast sistemi resmi olarak kaldirilmis durumda ama Gokarna`da geleneklere baglilik suruyor. Bir grup dusuk kasttan kadin tapinagin disinda cicek satiyor. Her isi yapmalarina musade edilmedigi gibi diger kadinlar gibi iclik giymelerine de izin verilmiyor. Eski zamanlarda gogusleri bu sekilde acikta birakmak bir asagilama metoduymus hem de kisinin kastini giyinisinden anlayabiliyorsunuz.

Gokarna is an old Hindu town, full with Brahmins. Almost all the houses are also temples. Normally cast system is demolished in India but in Gokarna, strictly following the old customs, still there is a strong cast system. Low cast women are selling flowers outside of the temple. They are not allowed to dress fully and cover their breast like other indian women as a way of humiliation and to mark them as low cast.

 

 

 

Zoliyle beraber kahvalti icin alt siniflarin gittigi bir lokantaya gittik. Heryerde milyonlarca sinek vardi ve hersey birak yemegi dokunmak istemeyeceginiz kadar pisti. Benim bozuk moralim Zoliyi cok eglendirdi, bu ani olumsuzlestirmek istedi. Orda yedik mi? Hayir…

Here is me with my unhappy and disgusted face. We went to a low cast`s restaurant where food is surrounded by billions of flies and dirt. Zoli enjoyed my almost crying face and took the shot. And well, I didn`t eat there…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Biz Om Beach`te resimdeki sari yerde kaliyoruz. We stay at the yellow place at Om Beach..

 

Sehrin ortasinda Lotus ciceklerinin actigi cok kirli bir havuz var. Burasi kutsal ve dibinde Naga denen kutsal yilanlarin yasadigina inaniliyor. Yilan da inek gibi Hindularin buyuk saygi duydugu hayvanlardan. Burda yikaniyorlar. Hatta altta kutsal Naga agaci bir inegin istilasi altinda. Inek sunaktakileri yemege calisiyor. Burada hersey kutsal:)

In the middle of the town there is a sacred pool which is believed under it there are Nagas (snakes) living. It is dirty and mysterious. A sacred Naga tree is occupied by a sacred cow eating the offerings:)

 

Fabian`la tanisin. Zoli`nin arkadasi. Fabian grafik tasarimci ama Hindistan`a gelince bir duvar sanatcisina donusuyor. Gittigi her sehirde duvarlara eglenceli resimler yapiyor.

Meet Fabian. He is an artist doing this nice paintings on the walls of the cities he has been, for fun.

 

Hayatimda hic bu kadar ne buldysam giymemistim. Moda kaygisi olmadan hayat iste boyle:) Fashion shock in India. Wearing everything together without any worries:)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gokarna`da dini sebeplerle alkol ve uyusturucu yasak. Tabiki kimse takmiyor:) In Gokarna drugs and alcohol strictly forbidden. Really??
