This is the last lot of the Durga Visarjan I shot on the first day, I did not go on the second day , the day it rained quite heavily.

In just a few hours I had shot over 750 images , I could have hung around but I was far too tired and dehydrated I dont eat or drink while shooting not even water or tea.

I was planning to leave but I spotted the North Bombay Mukerjee Durga so once again came back to the beach bonding with Subir Deb and Samrat Mukerjee.

Once this immersion got over I headed home walking barefeet till Juhu Tara Road.

modern bloodsucking moneyenders
who suck you dry fuck you dry
from both ends their evil deeds
criminal activities the system defends
harassment abuse threats these new
bhais of mumbai white collared
thugs scourge of society
causing a dent of money
that you took money that
you spent charging you interest
compound interest late fees
in your outgoings they invest
hiring hoodlums to drive people
to commit suicide they wont repent
a sordid tale solidly unpleasant
something must be done
to kerb their gangsterism urgent
a hard up hard driven soul on rent
he came he saw he want
a pesticide bottle he swallowed
to bring his story as the beginning
to an uncomplaining end

Bolo Durga mai-ki jai' (glory be to Mother Durga') and 'aashchhe bochhor abar hobe' ('it will happen again next year')
