(Shot while on the move. Pardon the blurriness)
Advertising enters festival land. 3 zoozoos on Ganesha... Actually, I thought they were aliens till my friend figured they were zoozoos. WTF?!
Uh huh, right?
I was sort of stunned when i saw this logo sticker mixed with Mickey Mouse and a bunch of other cutesy school things. This is a stationery store... meant for school kids etc.
If you can see an enlarged image, there are some of the logos that actually SAY 'playboy' on it. I'm not sure how in a porn/sex-starved country, we don't know what Playboy is, or what the logo is... but it is quite hilarious!
(this does seem to be the week for explanations eh?)
No other word for it. It was a long drive and I suddenly realised my mirror was placed in such a way that I could make weird hand gestures... which is how I entertained myself at even traffic stop.. making funny gestures. and whatever.
Except at one stop, there are a bunch of hijaras who accost you... this one came in full speed and actually paused for a minute to see what the bloody hell I was doing. She was amused enough to leave me alone when I shook my head (or scared off? I wish!)
So after the Ganesha festival comes the "visarjan" or the sinking of the idol. A huge event... and an excuse for people to beat drums and dance on the street... a lake close to my place is a popular spot for this.
I shudder to think about the environmental impact of it all... but it is quite interesting to watch. And blurry.
This was actually an attempt that take shot of the second when you pull the teabag out of the cup and you see swirls of brown in the clear water. However, the lens was fogged before I even managed to pull the teabag out...
This is a building I used to pass on my way to work for nearly 3 years. It is supposed to be a hotel but they had stopped work on it for quite some time.
And then suddenly, it is done like almost overnight and done quite bizzare. I actually want to get a shot of the front.... but for now, look at the awesome color.
