After ashram, Julia Roberts moving to world's wettest place

     Julia Roberts and the unit of her latest flick 'Eat, Pray, Love' may soon have to unpack their monsoon gear as they set out for Cherrapunji in north-east India after winding up a film shoot at a Pataudi ashram. Cherrapunji is one of the wettest places in the world and witnesses a record annual rainfall of over 900 inches. The Daily Express quoted US Indian statesman Rajan Zed saying about Cherrapunji: "It is inhabited by Khasis who, unlike most of India, follow matrilineal culture, where a husband lives with his wife's family and his children take their mother's surname." Zed has also urged Roberts to "explore her spirituality" by visiting the various temples in the northeast. He said: "I understand Ms. Roberts has visited a nearby village, where large numbers of villagers reportedly congregated to have a look at her. "I urge Julia to visit the fascinating Hindu temples in Meghalaya and nearby Assam while shooting in the Cherrapunji area to explore her spirituality further. It would complement her interest in yoga and all things Indian."
