So I would not go to Azad Maidan.. and I have shot Eid Namaz once the volunteers get pushy, and even on a day like Eid forget the message of Peace And Brotherhood. Things might have changed now I dont know .. So I am all for Bandra more accessible and I get to meet a few of my old photographer friends.
I shot Durga Puja Durga visarjan back to back on a injured leg so my leg is in very bad shape and I shoot all religious events barefeet..
This time there were not many photographers but my two favorite ones Pratik Koli and Satish Malavade .
After the namaz I walked through the back lanes of the Indiraji Nagar slums and shot a kurban in a hut.. and some in and around Bandra .
Our bakra is bought at Ebu butcher Noorani Mosque lane, we have it cut there and the meat bought home ..my idea to bring the bakra at home shoot the slaughter with the grand kids was shot down by wife ...
Wishing all of you Happy Bakra Eid Mubarak, this is my new set at Flickr ..
I met Samrat Mukerjee too and I had done his costumes too, so I decided to stay back and shoot the North Bombay Durga Visarjan, Debu Mukerjee was calling the shots getting everything organized on the beach.
And these are memories of a beautiful night my tribute to a Divine Mother ,..my tribute to the Bengalis of Mumbai... and part of my 44000 Hindu Blogs on Hope and Hindutva .. a message of Peace Hope Harmony and Humanity ..United colors of my beloved Mumbai.
