This morning at about 10.30 am I took a cab left for Dadar barefeet and reached Ranade Road to shoot Dahi Handi 2012.

I try not to miss this event for two reasons one I feel my late Guru Prof BW Jatkar comes down to earth in spirit to shoot this feast, as we both shot it together when he was alive.

And the second reason I get to meet old photographer friends , as shooting the dahi handi has nothing to do with photography more an annual reunion and bonding of lost friends.

And sadly I met just a few old friends like Danish Siddique Reuters Pratik Koli and Nitin Sonawane Times group, and this year the crowds were missing at Dadar as most of the guys who break the handis were heading to venues that offered big prize money in lacs ..

So it was quite depressing I walked away after shooting some frames towards Khandke building and than went to Smarth studio Dadar art studio of the Guruji brothers late Pramod and Vinod my old friends Vinod was not in I met his kind wife who allowed me to shoot some pictures at the studio.

I than came to the Shiv Sena Shivaji Park pandal and shot for about half an hour and walked all the way from Dadar to Mahim, from Mahim I took a cab till Lucky Hotel.. from here I shot the beggars and shot an attempt to break the Bandra Bazar Road Dahi Handi and this year because of health issues I decided to come home early and be less adventurous than I was last year.

So this set becomes a part of Hope and Hindutva my documentary of Hindu Blogs as Universal Message of Peace and Humanity.
