C H I C A G O - the unseen celebration

"या देवी सर्वभूतेषु सृष्टीरूपेण संस्थिता । नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमस्तस्यै नमो नम: ॥ "

Subha Bijaya Dashami to everybody... I had the most memorable Durga Puja in the US, and I have one more to go to 'tomorrow' :) It's like "DOUBLE Cheese (Puja) Burger (Crasher)"

Ticket Please - The CTA in Chicago where the red, blue, green, orange and pink lines meet

Flower Basket - Getting ready for Pushpanjali

The Famous Five - 5 different fruits, vegetables, flowers, rice are supposed to be offered to her during the puja

Puja Essentials - The Famous Hindu (or Lakshmi) Kalash

Danpatra - "No puja or offering is complete without giving Bills be it India or US!"

: The most famous Hindu symbol "" caught in a different form...

Celebration : "happy bongs" "festive moments"

"Darpan Bisharjan on Camera", This is my favourite shot of the event for the 1st half of the 1st day on my 1st visit to Chicago !

More of the trip as I catch up with time and work... Thanks for your comment Kshitiz it pushed me to get to the hard disk and share the Bong Connection part of Chicago !

Happy Dushera and Happy Bijaya Dashami to everybody once again till I come back again. All shots are straight from the SD card.

I think Kolkata is the only place where most stores (local markets) are closed in the afternoon for an afternoon nap, that's how it is at Saltlake atleast !!Posted by Picasa
