My Favorite Goddess Gauri at Juhu Chowpatty

Gauri represents purity and austerity. She is the Kanya (young, unmarried) Parvati who had undergone severe penance in order to get Lord Shiva as her husband. Sita, the consort of
Lord Rama, had worshipped Gauri to fulfill her desire to marry Lord Rama.

Unmarried girls worship Gauri in order to get a virtuous husbands.

What Gauri Visarjan Means To Me

Many years back I was a chronic alcoholic just could not kick the habit as hard I tried visits to the psychiatrist and what not including the usual dua tawiz and exorcising the devil called Alcohol by Tantrik bawas.

The day I decided to give up alcohol completely about 12 years back I had a fight with my wife the following morning in sheer failure of will power I rushed to Yacht the Bevdas adda for guys like us on the hard beaten Track , I drank myself to death.

I came home pissed and as I woke up after my nasha had left me I knew my drinking had begun , because a drop was enough to re start the cycle of pain to me and my family.

So at about 5 pm I took my camera I was just dabbling in photography those days and reached Juhu beach from the lane which is close to the Union Bank ..

It was Gauri Visrajan and I let myself forget booze the worries of the world , I was shooting film , so I shot sparingly and from that day till today I never ever touched a single drop of alcohol, I know more than any thing it was my wifes and my children s prayers but the day was what I have remembered and try not to miss shooting Goddess Gauri and come to terms with my sordid past and a struggling future.

So when I set foot at Juhu Beach last evening you can imagine the pathos poetry of pain that I would soon convert into pictures and blogs.

And those who knew me during my boozing days will know what I am talking abut ..

Sadness as Lord Ganesha Leaves For His Heavenly Home

I Shall Miss You The Most Lord Ganesha

He is the Pamaks pet dog and he looked lost once Lord Ganesha took leave of the hospitality of this house and this is pain and devotion too .. though the Pamaks dog would bark the loudest at me because of my attire , I shot a ot of pictures of the Ganpat pandals and house Ganpatis I have not posted at my set on Flickr.

And this is my favorite picture I could not have shot it but Lord Ganesha whispered in my ear to keep this one of his staunchest devotee.

I am not a newspaper guy but I try to give you news as fast as I can before you see the usual crappy pictures in the rags of India tomorrow I do not have to appease the soul of a photo editor I shoot what I want where I want when I want.

I shot te Mount Mary Fair last evening this evening I jumped into Harish Pamaks tempo that was going for Immersion to Juhu Beach with their Lord Ganesha..i got off to shoot pictures and lost them in the crowds , I had come here barefeet and my feet are swollen in great pain too as I have been regularly shooting all this at long stretch almost every day since the day I shot Lal Bagh Cha Raja the Idd Namaz GSB Mount Mary and this is my new set at Flickr on Gauri Visarjan my favorite photogenic goddess of Peace Hope and Humanity.

All I had at the beach was two bananas and some prasad I drank water when I reached home from Juhu Beach walking till Santacruz Police Station and took a ricksh from there for home ..the entire JuhuTara Road was made one way you can come but not go back the same way for going back you had to take SV Road.

I shot most of these pictures on flash and am not happy with the results , my SB 800 Nikon flash too is not in prime condition.

On the way I shot the massive Cong I Ganesh procession of Mr Kripa Shankar Singh with Shia youth leader of Cong I Mr Javed Shroff a dear friend too.
