#GaneshChaturthi is a very very big day in Pune.

As sad as it is to bid farewell, #GaneshVisarjan is an even bigger deal!

It’s something you should absolutely try and experience first hand at some point.

It starts with the Rangoli. The boys and girls who do it are amazing artists specially since you practically get only one shot.

A constant fracture is the “Bhagwa” “भगवा”.

The other two constants are the people’s Smartphones and the Dhol Tasha troupes. This is the culmination of their efforts.

It’s incredible what they pull off in this heat and humidity.

Good to see some young ones too.

🕉 #GaneshChaturthi
Do You Know why the ritual of getting Bhagawan GaneshJi home started?
Maharishi VedVyasJi wrote Mahabharat in poetry form. He was unable to write it in Prose Form. So he requested Bhagwan GaneshJi to do the task for him 🚩1/4
🕉 The process of writing was going to take days and nights, this would have tired GaneshJi & he was not to take even water during this writing. This would have raised temperature of Lord's body. So Maharishi VyasJi applied paste of mud on GaneshJi’s body🚩2/4
🕉 On Bhadrapad Shukla Chaturthi the writing started & ended on Anant Chaturthi. At the end of the writing on Anant Chaturdashi, Maharishi VyasJi saw that Lord Ganesh's body temperature had risen a lot, So he immersed the Lord in water to cool him down & wash off the mud🚩3/4

One of my favourite things to do is walk around the “city”.

Had one such walk last night and captured some of the “dying breeds” as I see board after board with names like “9 Sadashiv” etc!

Thanks @kunal_tilak for baptising me on the “Pune Misal” at Badshahi!

The beauty and the beast!

All the old structures will soon be gone with the wind and replaced by Monstrosities.

Guess it’s all part of the times!
@GodboleSandeep always something that reminds me of you!
