Durga Puja ’12 – I

Well, we are back to our annual series of Durga Puja pictures 🙂

But as in Indian tradition, every good work has to be started after revering the Elephant-God, Ganpati

Incase you guys remember from my previous posts in 2010 and 2011, this puja happens specifically during Navratri and its a no-miss event in my annual calendar 😛

Ganpati Bappa Morya

The only thing that was a bother was Durve uncle’s fractured  leg….poor guy he was discharged just a day back and was still at his best with his hospitality!!

Nonetheless, an awesome start for the festive season 😀

 

Sept 2011 – Last day

Ganpati Bappa Morya

Well incase you are new to the blog(or have a strong memory), this is the special Ganpati puja that takes place at one of Dad’s closest friends, Durve uncle on the 4th day or Chaturthi of Navratri…..for more details click HERE

Aum Ganeshay Namah

What better way to end a month than a generous darshan of Ganpati…..simply loved this shot for its sheer beauty and divinity…..

Troubled grandpa

This was a scene to watch at the puja…..Durve uncle had a real tough time handling two of his grand nieces and it was absolute fun to watch these kiddies throwing around their tantrums. This was one of the chance shots and I actually love it for its imperfection… 😉

Sept 2011 -II

Same old turn...

Three consecutive sleep-deprived nights plus all the arrangements for the puja, had left me haggled the day after Ganesh chaturthi…..but the simple thought of visarjan was enough of a catalyst to leave early for the day and join the gang….

Is mod se jaate hain
kuch sust kadam raste, kuch tez kadam raahe
patthar kee hawelee ko, sheeshe ke gharondo me
tinkon ke nasheman tak, is mod se jaate hai…

clicked this shot while awaiting for the bus at panchkutir…brought back quite good old memories….had taken the same shot almost a year back and loved it once again.

 

Getting ready for visarjan

Nothing beats the sadness than seeing off your favorite deity and wait one more whole year for his next arrival….will sorely miss you Ganpati 😦

High above the sky....

 Clicked this pic while waiting for a rick outside my house to go to the dance class…the mobile camera shot may not be able to convey fully the beauty of the moon but nonetheless….the bird flying was an added bonus 😉
