This evening at 7 pm I walked up the steps of Mount Mary to shoot the Mount Mary Mass in the courtyard and than shot the basilica .. I shot extensively as tomorrow the feast starts and I will be walking barefeet to shoot the Lalbagh Chya Raja's journey to the choppy seas of Girgaum Chowpatty..

I have shot the Ramzan Idd Namaz at the Bandra Station , the Ganesh Chaturthi Feast , Michami Dukhadam, the Visarjan of GSB Seva Mandal , Gauri Visarjan 7 Day Visarjan of Siidhi Vinayak Temple Ganesha , and visarjan at Mahim and Dadar beach..

So I continue now with the Christian Ethos .. I shot Mount Mary a feast that provides sustenance for the stall owners , hope for beggars and blessings to the pilgrims of the Mount.

Once I stayed next to Mehboob Studios so the feast means nostalgia fond memories and my pilgrimage as a blogger starts from Mohomed Bhai's Good Luck Irani Hotel..
All pictures included in this new set at my Flickr photo stream.

I also shot Bandra Chya Raja of Mount Mary .. in the same series ..

I started my pilgrimage by having black Irani tea , it was free Mohomed bhai does not charge me as I have spent some great times at this joint I stayed as a tenant for a year at Pitruchaya next to Mehboob Studios , so my morning keema brun was at Good Luck..

I would watch strugglers established stars like Saurabh Shukla eating out here , and I love all the three Irani brothers Mohomed Bhai Jalal and Hamza..who own this famous heritage hotel..

I told Mohomed bhai about my dear Facebook friend Dr Mansoor Bhai Showghi Yezdi and he remembers him fondly..

These guys have paid a huge price , to get the stalls and they must cover their investment , so they pray to the Lady of the Mount to help them as what they earn will go in giving a better life to their children.. it is a struggle and as a poet I caught the nuance of their silent prayers for success and prosperity..


I stayed at Mount Mary next to Mehboob Studios but it is the first time I was shooting this feast on the eave of the Mount Mary celebrations.


There was hustle bustle and fear too as the Ganesha visarjan too is tomorrow so will the criwds come or not , most of these people have put all their savings in getting the stalls ..

Already little school kids were selling canles to the devotees ,, this is a poignant set I shot the Mount Mary evening Mass , I shot the Miraculous Statue of the Lady of the Mount .

I could not find Monsignor Neris Roderiques who has been my patron , who has been a great friend .. and has always thanked me for spreading the Message of Peace of Our Lady , living in peace and mutual coexistence is part of Bandra ethos and as a blogger I am happy of doing my bit in humility and gratitude.
