I was invited by my dear friend Raju Langewal treasurer of Lal Bagh Chya Raja Pandal ,for the inaugural Press Conference , heart to heart I knew it was sheer impossible to be there as I was stuck in Versova than Veera Desai Road for a very long time , it was 5 pm when I reached Bandra at Bandra no taxi driver was willing to go to Lal Bagh because of the continuous heavy rains and water logging, , I pleaded to a Muslim driver I told him if it is flooded he could drop me on the way side I had to be there .. he looked at me I was wearing my Muslim Karakul cap, he said he would take a chance, and when I reached Lal Bagh I gave him Rs 50 on top of his fare ..

To my luck it turned out the press conference was at 8 pm..I was barefeet , and I met an American photographer Arriane , she too had seen the media vans and come in she was far too excited ..

Like last year I again broke my fast at the Pandal dear friend Pratik Koli bought me some sugar with which I broke my fast and later I got wafers and a batatawada and some cold curds..

There was too much commotion , rush but I shot the Lord as he appeared to me on my camera consciousness ..And I present him to all of you ..

Message from Ariana

Hi Firoze,

I'm sorry I missed you after the unveiling of the Ganesha last week. I looked for you in the mass of people that were there, but no Firoze! I wanted to thank you for your kindness in talking with me that evening, making me feel welcome, and encouraging me to see the unveiling. It was a wonderful experience! And one that I will always remember.

I hope you are doing well. I'm back in China now, but will be heading to the US in November. If you are ever in the cold regions of Minnesota (no bare feet there from October to May!) please look me up. And when I return to Bombay (I really loved the city so I do hope to return) I will come out to see you at your shop.

Wishing you all the best, always.

Ariana

Satish Khankar Saab and my very dear friend Raju Langewal.. it was Raju who placed the 5 tickets of Dabbang first day first show at the first Arti of Lalbagh Chya Raja last year... that Mrs Punam Sinha had given me including ladoos and Rs 5001..

Well all that is forgotten now Sonakshi Sinha is a super star and her mom Punam Sinha is a super mom..

And I did it for Salman Khan I placed a small offering for the success of Dabbang ..Salman Khan has been very kind and human too me ..
