navratri, durga puja – day three

October 1, 2006 at 11:49 pm 1 comment

desperate to trash the loneliness at this festival environment, packed my bag and shot off for a trek at lonavala. took an early train to reach the place from pune. it was a random decision, which turned out to be a breather. not many times i choose to go out for a trek alone. but then this was a different time altogether. walked up the hills for an hour. beautiful weather, and some light drizzles. felt so happy out there, lonely amidst the greens and downstreams. peace. promised my fren to spend the afternoon at mumbai. so, after a few hours started heading for the expressway. was fortunate to catch a bus on the way and reached mumbai in the late afternoon. met uncle and aunty after a long time since we left school a good 12 yrs back.

thought of catching the puja actions in mubai in the evening. picked up DD and devarati from sivaji park and visited a few well-known puja joints. the atmosphere in RK Mission puja on Khar Road was the one that i liked most while the rest had all the commercial glitterings and buzzings. here are some of the pictures that i managed to capture thru my phone camera. forgot to take the batteries and my digiCam was of no use. 🙂 that’s the result one pays for making a sudden plan, i guess!!

link road, bandra puja

mukherjee family (kajol-rani) puja @ santacruz

This is the mukherjee family puja (Ram Mukherjee, Rani mukherjee’s father and famous producer) at santacruz beside poder school.

abhijeet’s puja at lokhandawala is the most popular puja in mumbai. there was a long queue for entering the premise. a live show of abhijeet was also on the cards but not open for general public.

Puja at Shivaji park

Puja at Powai

Puja at Juhu

sandhya arati (evening chants) at RK Mission premise on Khar road. the atmosphere here radiates the real devotion for goddess durga. elctrifying environment for the ones spiritually seeking the devi
