Ganesha Series - Part 2 - The Festivity
Ganesh chaturthi marks the beginning of the festival season in India after 3-4 months of rain break. As the sun shines from behind the clouds and the festivities all around, the environment livens up from a somber to joyous mood.
Various Ganesh Pandals set up across the city attract the visitors from all over the place to witness the splendour and the grandeur of the festival. Each of the pandals have their own USP with regards to the decoration and devotee experience.
In the 1st photo, you can observe the paradigm of Surya Mandir (Sun Temple) of Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, which was the decoration theme of Mumbai Cha Raja, Ganesh Galli pandal. The decoration exhibits exquisite detailing and finnesse.
The 2nd photo shows a devotee seeking the blessings of the Aarti offered to the Lord at Chinchpokli Cha Chintamani pandal. The devotees pray with utmost devotion to Lord Ganesh, who is also known as Vighnaharta, the destroyer of sorrows.
With large crowds gathering at various places, a photographer is exposed to various subjects. One such subject is seen in the 3rd photo, as this cute kid, blowing the soap bubbles and getting delighted by the same, preaching the message of Little Joys in Life.
