ILLUMINATIONS FOR VINAYAKA CHATHURTHI
Vinayaka Chathurthi is everyone's favourite festival. Children love to buy the mud dolls of Ganesa for the pooja, and the colourful little umbrella that goes with it. Also popular are the concerts, many of them held at temples, during the festivals.
At our neighbourhood temple in Warren Road, I went to attend our guru Ganga Mani's concert - and saw these illuminations outside the small temple.
Right now, the city is subjected to power cuts lasting 90 minutes every day between 6 am and 6 pm. Each area has its own time for this - we welcome the day without electriciy at 6 am. It is restored at 7.30 am
