Makers of My Favorite Attire


And finally the Navaratri is done. It’s pack up time now. These gorgeous colors will go in suitcase now and I will have to wait until next year. All the credits goes to my Maa and my Baa (Grandma) for making this amazing authentic ethnic wardrobe. My Maa sew the Kediyas and my Baa did all the handmade embroidery. Isn’t it PHENOMENAL ???

Pre-Navaratri

_MG_5307-2

Today after the Saturday test at evening class. I ran home and changed for my friend’s graduation ceremony. It being boring I again dashed back to home and changed for the Pre-Navaratri ( I was not in mood though I dressed up). I love to get dressed up for Navaratri. I just love this attire. Now it was time to roll on the floor.

A confident Woman

Women                       iso 800, 35mm, f/8, 1/200 Sec

I am Strong
I’ve been through a bit in my life and I’m still standing
I have self worth
It took a lot of soul searching to finally see for myself
I am beautiful
I don’t need anyone to tell me, I already know my glow
I am not perfect
Nobody is perfect but I’ve seen my good and bad sides
I am just myself
I will never be alone, I will always be there for me

To explore the city inside out me and a friend of mine decided  to travel in local chakada(public transport) instead of calling a private cab. While travelling I was just goofing around with the camera and was taking picturing of him just for fun and was also clicking the streets around. Suddenly the chakada stopped to pickup more passengers. And these three ladies climbed in wearing their traditional Nawarri Saree. Confidence in her eyes, strength in her body line caught my attention. I was hell scared to click her. So initially I was faking the clicks and the moment I got the perfect picture my focus narrowed to the ladies and I removed my friend out of the frame.

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.
