I try not to miss this event for two reasons one I feel my late Guru Prof BW Jatkar comes down to earth in spirit to shoot this feast, as we both shot it together when he was alive.

And the second reason I get to meet old photographer friends , as shooting the dahi handi has nothing to do with photography more an annual reunion and bonding of lost friends.

I shot most of my pictures from the road , I did not feel like going to the skywalk, I wanted proximity of spiritual peace and later much later I went up and shot a few frames from the sky walk..I did not shoot much ,and I shot the children Idd hugging picture that the parents generously give of the kids for for the next days lucky to be there in the newspapers.. The kids too have learnt the task of posing for the cameras , these kids are the best along with the sole girl.. they are the most wanted by the camera folks even bloggers like me..

I shoot the namaz barefeet as I do not want to disrespect the sanctity of the namaz with footwear..
