A taste of the real village of Rameshwaram.
Celebrating our festive Ganesh Pandal Hopping with a unique Ganesha made up entirely of Indian spices. This one not only makes you appreciate the artistry but also inspires with an awe inspiring sense of love, the way Bappa would with his Maa Parvati.
Our Ganesha for today comes in a beautiful artistic flavor: He is made from Paper Quilling! And I say He looks even more cute and friendly in this eco-avatar of His.
It’s the first day of one of the most awaited festivals of India and one of the most popular in Mumbai, Ganesh Chaturthi.
The much loved elephant God, the cute and mischievous, and one of my favourites – Ganpati Bappa will be home soon, seated like a bosom friend, an intimate confidante, amid His favourite people – with you and me.
It was just a matter of seconds that I retrieved this picture of ‘Munshi Premchand Ghat’ from my Varanasi pictures folder. And got working on this post.
‘You have to watch India in India truly to appreciate the pressure that Sachin Tendulkar is under every time he bats. Outside grounds, people wait until he goes in before paying to enter. They seem to want a wicket to fall even though it is their own side that will suffer. This is cricket as Sachin has known it since the age of 16.

All the nine forms of Shakti come alive as divine qualities in the many Goddesses (Devi orMata in Hindi) through stories and local legends worshipped all across the lengths and breadths of India which in turn inspire us on our journey to become One with the Master again.

Ganesh Chaturthi Celebrations: Day 7 | Ganpati Pandal Darshan | Sethji or The Rich Ganesha
Standing beneath His majestic-al figure, hands folded and head lowered – the force that hits, that aura, the blessedness of that rare transcendental moment is simply stunning. It’s a feeling, delicate but powerful
Ganpati Pandal Hopping from Mumbai!
The temple is a stony affair, built entirely in massive and serene stones adding to its rustic charisma. In contrast to the boulder-ed temple, it’s surroundings are exquisite, scenic and full of greenery. Huge trees provide shady canopies overlooking the enormous confluence (sangam) stream of Karha and Chameli Rivers flowing through the seismic town.
Let us visit this ancient Temple in Saswad!!
If we were to literally go by the name, Tulsibaug is no ‘Tulsibaug’ anymore – the basil plants are nowhere to be seen and there is no garden. On the face of it – it’s hard, stony but it’s just a matter of time and you realize the something that is deep and buried within it…
