This is a beautiful time of the year
Lights twinkling by the roadside
Hymns and prayers in the air even if they blare non stop
The rains have taken a break for a while
Ganpati processions.
Smiling people
And above all, the percussion beat of the Dholi
Yesterday I scurried around town visiting friends who had invited me for darshan.
Borivali- Dahisar- Thane-  Andheri E in a matter of hours, yes the roads were blissfully empty.
My friend V took me for GSB Ganpati darshan this morning. Amazing. Serene.
I feel blessed

RIP Dinesh Thakur.
What a presence. Too many plays to mention.
You held the Prithvi audience in the palm of your hand.

I envy u Austy! I heard a Ganesh Aarti & thats all, dint even go to the temple since I had a demo & it would become quite crowded at night. Couldn't wear traditional dress or bindi bcoz of the demo too :( I looked up pictures of Ganpati from my home town in the internet & that felt better :)
