Shubho Bijoya to all of you

We went pandal hopping to every pandal but CR Park (I couldn’t brave the throng there!) and the kids had a blast. Durga Puja is celebrated with great enthusiasm in Delhi and the OA dressed up in his favourite bong kurta to take us out.

Here he’s telling them the stories of what is going on stage ….


And here they join their hands and do pranam. The Bean who is hugely influenced by yoga at school insists on breaking into a loud Ommmmm whenever we tell her to close her eyes and join her hands – with no regard to place or time. They looked gorgeous with little red teekas and I had helluva time getting them to brush and wash their faces at night!


I was in my usual place behind the camera.
