Farewell to Lord Ganesha

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 wish I could have been in India for this festival but it looks like my six month visit will start right at Diwali!

Hi Vinni,
I am glad when I see your name on comment. Thank you!

This heron is not a migratory bird, they did their nest on the trees around the lake. There are many herons flying around here.

Have a nice day!

Hello Vinni!
I always learn about India when you comment on my post and when I visit you too. I did not know Diwali and that Diwali means to you in India what Christmas means to us.
Have a nice day!

Hi Vinni, thanks for your visit and comment on my current post.
I googled and see that the fruit Jamun, (Syzygium cumini) and (Syzygium jambolanum DC.) looks like a Jaboticaba but isn't the same fruit. Jamun is native to India and the Jaboticaba is native to Brazil, but both belong to the Myrtaceae Family. In Brazil Jamun is named as Jambol√£o (Syzygium cumini).
When we have eaten Jaboticaba, the color of our tongue don't stay purple.
Have a nice week ahead.
