An impoverished but tough looking mother sat on the roadside with a plastic pail full of lotus flowers. A child sat in her laps eating kachauri.

People were milling around in the Mandai area of Pune for the famed Dagdu Seth Ganapati idol where long queues build up and a logistical nightmare is always playing its tune. Lots of police, lots of other help,lots of sightseers, lots of shoppers and lots of devotion. I took a weary round of the place and found it too crowded and I wondered if God really exists in such places made of commercial piety.

This is the season of Ganapati consecration and immersion, an immensely popular religious event in the calendar of the city and its Marathi inhabitants.

The mother and child looked into the frame but briefly. The black and white is made for a gritty and antique and grungy look.
