One Last Ganpati Before Its Time to Bid Him Goodbye!

Tomorrow, we bid goodbye to Ganesha, and have to wait for one full year before he arrives again. I have taken you along as I visited Ganeshas all over Mumbai, and there is just enough time to share with you the last one for this year........

This one is the one in our colony - the Chedda Nagar Ganpati.

The decoration features the one person who is probably the most popular this year -  Anna Hazare!

It shows India being pulled down by our corrupt politicians, and Anna Hazare cutting the rope of corruption they use to pull the country down. Samhith wondered why they hadnt shown Anna Hazare blessing Anna so that all our problems would be solved immediately! If only it was so easy!

However, for Samhith, the major attraction was this... the entrance..... This is how it looked on the first day....

This is how it looked on the 9th day.....

and here is Samhith adding his words to it!

  1. That's a nice theme for Ganesh chaturthi...nice viewing your Ganesha pics from this lovely festival.

  2. Interesting! I agree with Samhith! Your Ganpati series have been a real treat to watch, thanks for all the share! I am trying to put up one last one tomorrow too before the visarjans begin!

  3. Very cute on Samhith's part. He's already a responsible citizen, all thanks to you Anu.

    I liked the fact that you clicked the picture of wall on the 1st day also for comparison. Many times we forget to do so.

  4. What a wonderful post,especially loved the pic where Samhith is adding his mite to the wall :)

    Enjoyed his handiwork of Ganesh idol too which you had posted on Arti's blog :)

  5. Thanks Arti! I would love to post a last one about the immersion, but its so crowded I tend to avoid stepping out on such days... lets see what He has in mind!

  6. Thanks so much, Nisha! I actually visited and took pics of the Ganesha on the very first day..... and then waited for the last day to take  a pic so i could post!

  7. Hope my pics and blog helped u instead of making you feel more homesick!

  8. Very interesting.  Surely now the responsibilities shift to Samhit too and he is proving it. Cheddanagar is even otherwise famous for the unique temple.

  9. Looks like you folks are having a good time and the lokwall seems to be very popular...Thomas

  10. Thanks! I do hope he handles the responsibilities well when the time comes.. after all, that is what every parent really wants! and yes, chedda nagar's temple is famous... and the ganpati is getting to be, too!

  11. Nice to see you here, Thomas, after so long! and guess the Lok Wall was popular more for the interaction it allowed with the ganpati!

  12. I finally like the Chedda Nagar Ganpati! Wish I was there! Seriously missed all the Ganpati hungama this year. There is nothing close to samoohik about the Ganpati in Delhi :( Was reminded of our darshan trip couple of years ago. Did you and Samhith go this year too?

  13. I thought u would have liked it! and yes, we went on the same round, and remembered u too... chembur and matunga both!

  14. From now on chhedanagar would be famous for as well :)
    Still need to add data on contacts and a forum link on different topics. Would be ready completely in a weeks time.

  15. good idea! just headed over there!

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
