Take a Number

Before entering the temple for the Vaikunta Ekadasi festival, everyone had to remove their footwear. Considering the large numbers of people at the event, that's a lot of sandals! To help with the process, numbers were written on the sole of the shoes. Even at that, it must have been a challenge finding your sandals afterwards. Unless you have a standout pair, such as the white flipflops with blue straps in this picture!

These sandals all seem to have flat bottoms to make the writing easier. Wouldn't do well with my tire-soled sandals!
