137th Rathyatra Celebration

With millions of Amdavadis, I and Raju Vednayagam witnessed 137th  Lord Jagannath Rath Yatra. On Ashadha Maas Shukla  Dwitiya(second day of waxing moon cycle in the Hindu month of Ashadh) after the Pahind Vidhi (Path Cleaning on chariot of Lord Jagannath) Lord Krishna come out to visit the city with his sister Subhdraji and brother Baldevji. Rathyatra covers 18 kilometer of route around the old Amdavad with 18 elephants. The city streets overflows with devotees to meet Lord Jagannath. The procession halts at Saraspur at Mama’s Place (Mother’s Brother) for ‘Maha Bhog’ (Grand Meal). The Rath proceeds further to compete the yatra around the city.

Vijay Rally

16th May,2014.

Today was the day when world’s largest democracy was going to have a new leader. So as everyone I was also curious. While walking down to my office I was constantly changing status on whatsapp from 300 to 2x HeadStart to Abki baar Modi Sarkar. I rushed into my cubicle and switched on my system. Sat on boring black chair, facing 21′ inch LCD. I googled the result’s website it was taking hell lot of time to load. So I peeped into my colleague’s desktop and he was doing the same. I jumped out from chair and saw everyone was engrossed in same thing. Today the priority was not work at all it was results. The hot discussion was about current election trend. Hey! who’s going up? What’s the score? Dude! My connection is down(sad). How many seats he got? Haha He lost? Yepp she won the race. Constantly receiving mails, texts, trolls, tweets, snaps and what not. The whole day went like this. Watching the number games on the floor. Finally i got rid of my boring black chair. Time to go home. Phone’s also dead now. Saffron is the color of the day. On my way back to home amazingly I saw my entire neighborhood on the roadside,up on the terrace, popping out from hospital windows too. When I asked a person, I got to know everyone was waiting to have a glance of their new Prime Minister. I could not resist myself to capture this wonderful evening.
