View from the Water



While the eleventh day is reserved for immersing the big Ganeshes, immersion of the smaller ones has been going on all week (as shown in yesterday's photo of the procession). This shot was taken at Chowpatty Beach, one of the city's prime dunking areas. These boys looked very somber as they lead Ganesh out the sea. Most others dance, splash around, and build human pyramids (like on Janmashtami) while doing the job.

I was in a small boat, just off the shore. I managed to get some amazing photos that day.
