Ganpati at Dharwad, 2014

Shuklaambara Dharam Vishnum
Shashi Varnam Chatur Bhujam
Prasanna Vadanam Dhyaayet
Sarva Vighna Upashaanthaye

Every year this season I would go around Dharwad seeing Ganesha of different localities and streets. But this year a change in my life happened; I had to shift to Hyderabad. Yes, I miss Dharwad. I somehow wanted to continue having pictures of Ganesha's in 'Life at Dharwad'. Here steps in Pushpa Hubballi with her pictures shot from her mobile. Though the pictures are low resolution they were framed well. If she had had a good camera you would be seeing crispy clear images. Anyway, lets look at the creativity of people of Dharwad.
