Nyepi: silence holiday in Bali

Bali welcomes silence for 'Nyepi' holiday

Items from Bali: The day of silence, Nyepi March 19th: on this very day, the island wakes up to a day of perfect stillness: no fires are to be lit, no food cooked, no activity carried out and nobody is allowed to be seen on the streets during this day of prayer and meditation. No paper: in observance of Nyepi (the Hindu Day of Silence) The Jakarta Post will not be published Monday (March 19). The paper will resume publication Tuesday.
