Welcome at Kolhapur Station

We had arrived at Kolhapur before Breakfast and then left the train at 8am, having early starts to the day's programme.  We crossed the lines from our platform to be ushered into a waiting room where we suddenly found ourselves having turbans tied to our heads.  The men doing it had no English so it was all done by sign language when we needed to help the process, but they were very fast and could make the turbans in about 30 to 40 seconds.

We also had a greeting with a man playing a large curved hunting horn.  He was to follow us to a number of sights during the day.
