postcard from j: thank you, mr. hosseini

It had been a rather emotional roller-coaster of a week before today.

He said, "Nice to see you smiling today..." It was his birthday.

And I could only say in the silence of my heart, "For you, a thousand times over."

Thank you, Mr. Hosseini.

Snapshots from the final day of Ganeshotsav near my home...
 Ganpati Bappa Morya!
 A passing truck of devotees taking their Ganesha idol for immersion ('visarjan')

 The traditional 'mandal' band guys waiting to kickstart proceedings...

Fireworks to signal merriment

 Traffic snarls and crowds everywhere
Gulal and dancing
The talented 'mandal' band
Drumming up a frenzy...
With every ounce of energy...
We bid adieu!
