These were taken during my recent short tour to Diveagar…in an attempt to capture the essence of a typical Konkani village in Maharashtra.

the early morning sun

 

the innocence

 

the progress

 

the vibrancy

 

the fruit

 

the laid back life

Ganesh Utsav:Day6

Yesterday was the day when Gauri(Parvati,Ganpati’s mother) is worshipped and offered an elaborate meal,in many of Indian houses.A day before,her arrival is marked symbolically by drawing footmarks.Today she is bid farewell,and like ours,many people immerse their Ganesh idols today,with heavy hearts.

Here are photographs of the Gauri,from my friend Mangesh…im really thankful to him for keeping in mind and sending over the snaps.

A lot of effort is taken by women,like kaku here, to decorate the Gauri idols,right from the backdrop to the crown and minute details like nathni(ornament worn in nose) and bindi,like you can see in the close up here.

More images flowing your way in coming days too…keep tack!
