The town is agog.

It is festival time.

Celebrations go on.

Unmindful of  incessant rains

the puja is performed


Nine nights of the year

devoted to Goddesses

of learning,  of victory,

of wealth, of benevolence

a thematic presentation.


Dolls of Gods, leaders,

soldiers, poets, merchants

dancing girls, find their places

in the stepped dais. The

Gods stand high up.


Colourful and impressive

the decorum enfolds.

Ponds with fish add

to the liveliness. The

play of cricket lends modernity.


Extraordinary  imagination is seen.

In each household enthusiasm

overwhelms. Snacks and hot

beverages are served.

A lovely rendez vous.
