OUR LITTLE TRIP TO PUNE.....
We were in Pune over the weekend , Its a city which is just 3 hours drive from Mumbai the place I live.
I went there on the occasion of GANESH CHATURTI a festival of lord GANESHA, Pune is a place where this utsav or festival was first started and people still celebrate it with the same fervor and gaiety .
for more details on this festival read this site here .
Its so wonderful to get the feel of a place especially when the festivities are on , you see people walking on the road with things required at home for the celebration, you could see stalls selling Lord Ganesha murti's or Idols..
I loved this above Ganapati Idol... There was so much rush around the place that I could not click more pictures than what I have, It was also getting very dark and so clicking pictures was getting all the more difficult.
I somehow managed to park my car in such a way that it would not disturb the devotees who had all eyes and senses for the lord.
I stood at a distance to click this photos , I had to zoom the pictures in order to click them so please excuse the quality.
