They say when you are in love the world seems like a beautiful place, Auli is one such place where you can't help but fall in love. I am sharing one such beautiful morning captured in Auli - Uttrakhand (India)
As the Ganesh Chaturthi festival comes to an end people come in hordes to bid farewell to their favorite god. In India we simply love all our festivals or let me put it this way that we just need a reason to celebrate!! With Ganesh Chaturthi our festive season starts and it comes to an end only with Christmas and New year. India has so many different religions and customs all living in peace & harmony it really makes me proud to be an born in this Great Nation.
Here are some pics of Ganesha from my neighboring area.
I had taken all these pics at Raigad, It was a small trek but i enjoyed it a lot.
I plan to put up more photos of Raigad in the coming week. Raigad was the main fort or headquarters of Shivaji the Great Maratha warrior.
The first rays of the morning sun appear on the horizon(enlarge and see the difference)
The view of the mountains, look at the snake like winding roads
Sun-rays are now showing up as we begin to ascend towards the fort
Now that day is bright we head towards the view point (takmak)
Starting today most parts of India celebrate the festival of Ganesh Chaturthi welcoming the elephant god - Ganesha. The festival will the be celebrated for the next 10 days.
These are the pics of the Ganesha that we have in our house, this is the 101st year that our family is celebrating this festival continuing the tradition started by our great grandfather.
I wish and pray that this festive season let Ganesha bring lots of Happiness, Peace and Joy in everyone's life.
