i offered my prayers at the Siddhi Vinayak Temple in Bombay on my recent trip there.
the visit to the temple wasn't very pleasant as it was full of people pushing each other to get a glimpse of Lord Ganesha which turned out to be quite a struggle for me and my family.
sometimes i wonder if we in India will even learn to stand in lines!
when i think about it more..then i feel that its the presence of people (so many of them...more like a mob) and all their pushing and struggle is what made me feel like i was in a temple, in the middle of religious faith, where just a two second glimpse gave me the immense sense of achievement. it made me concentrate only on the supreme Lord with a furious passion if only
for those two seconds..
on my way out i had to had to buy these bright and colourful idols of Lord Ganesha.
they are so in tune with the raging 'colour blast' trend in the home and fashion markets right now! i'd love to know what you think of these..
