From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Satyanarayana is a Hindu religious observance. It is a ritual performed by Hindus before/on any major occasion like marriage, house warming ceremony etc. It can also be performed on any day for any reason. It finds first mention in skandha puran
The Satyanarayana Puja is usually done on the Purnima day of every month (the day of the full moon) or a Sankranti. It is also done on special occasions and during times of achievements as an offering of gratitude to the Lord. These occasions include marriage, graduation, new job, and the purchase of a new home to name a few. In addition, it is said that a devotional performance of this puja will bear children to couples trying to start a family.

I Had Gone To Canon Master Care To Get My Cameras Checked Up Before Visarjan

I Had Gone To Canon Master Care To Get My Cameras Checked Up Before Visarjan, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
I was having focusing problem with both my Canon camera so I took it to Canon Master Care Service center at Natraj Rustomejee Andheri East, and they immediately sorted it out , actually the gulal had blocked the flash sockets and this is one big problem shooting Visajan over enthusiastic kids even adults love to throw gulal at your camera and educating them gets you guffaws and grins I saw this at Lalbagh Chya Raja Visarjan last night and it is sad , we as bloggers shoot and document their religious feasts and festivals with sincerity and they defiantly attack us with gulal..

Both my cameras are now covered in gulal post Visarjan .

Overall the Canon staff and technicians are very polite and go out of their way to resolve your camera problems ..

And this trip my second one in three days gave me an opportunity to shoot the Natraj Studio Ganesha and their Satyana…

Jai Mangal Murti Ichapurti - Purcha Varshi Laokar Ya

Jai Mangal Murti Ichapurti - Purcha Varshi Laokar Ya, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. Most of the people come very early in the morning and park themselves outside the Lalbagh Chya Raja main street gate , this is a great picture when the Raja comes out .. and than the younger robust ones with hardy shoots walk behind him , and you need to be tough not lose your cool ..

I have shot the Raja once from the gate thanks to Vikram a volunteer and my Facebook friend..

I have shot the Raja following him from the main gate to Baharamata talkies from a house balcony and a terrace ..but I changed the rules of the game , as I was carrying a heavy bag two cameras an umbrella water bottle .. normally I carried a small satchel ..

I have shot the Raja in the rains too and mostly during Ramzan fasting and the Lalbagh volunteers helping me break my fast at a restaurant near Byculla . I have some great memories shooting the Raja and I remember a Hindu guy who told me while I was breaki…

I Came At 8 Am To Shoot The Lalbagh Raja Visarjan.. 2012, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr.
Normally I came by 10 am shot the Ganesha Gullty Mumbai Chya Raja as it steps out from his darbar and than by 12 tried to get in the Lalbagh Chya Raja Pandal which used to be extremely difficult ..
but I changed my plans carried both my cameras and all my cards in a new bag I had bought recently

And here I met Sagar Bekal my Facebook friend so I had company,and I needed company because my legs were swollen from the GSB Seva Mandal Visarjan and the 7 Juhu Visarjan..

And when the Raja came out I did not follow him I did not have the strength so i caught up with him at Chinchpokli ..than Byculla I had my first cup of tea at 7.30 pm at Byculla and than followed him till Clare Road Nagpada ..

At Chinchpokli I also shot Ganesh Gully Chya Raja and Tejukaya and Parel Cha Raja.. and Lambodar Cha Raja ..

I returned back from Nagpada
