When Rajeev,my son showed these photographs (2 and 3) which he had shot at Mumbai ,I was reminded of the picture of a painting I saw some time back.I have added that painting "Nocturne in Black and Gold The falling Rocket" by James Abbot McNeill Whistler,the American artist(1872-77) of the fireworks he saw in London.
Rajeev's photos are two views of the 'deepavali glitter' reflected in the open gutter. :-).Both look lovely.

This little Ganesha did learn a trick or two from his father
'Gana' means -'of the multitudes'. As the name denotes Ganapathy is the most popular of the Hindu deities -invoked before starting any important social ceremony or official function.His help is saught for the unhindered progress in life and everything we do.
May Ganesha be with us always. :-).

Here is a painting in oil .Done ten years back :) . Everyday hundreds of cattle are brought from Tamil Naadu into Kerala for slaughtering.They are most cruelly treated and made to walk the whole distance most of the time. I wished some of them atleast could escape. An 'escapist' dream :( .
