This photograph is just a glimpse of the madness of janmashtami in mumbai. Krishna Janmashtami (Devanagari कृष्ण जन्माष्टमी kṛṣṇa janmāṣṭami), also known as Krishnashtami, Saatam Aatham, Gokulashtami, Ashtami Rohini, Srikrishna Jayanti, Sree Jayanti or sometimes merely as Janmashtami, is an annual commemoration of the birth of Krishna. popularly known in Mumbai and Pune as Dahi Handi, is celebrated with enormous zeal and enthusiasm. The handi is a clay pot filled with buttermilk that is positioned at a convenient height prior to the event. The topmost person on the human pyramid tries to break the handi by hitting it with a blunt object

I always get fascinated by this visual of ‘man working hard without caring for clothes, his body is only visible in some lumps and rest is all covered in dust. So focused on his work that he doesn’t care about anything else’. This sight was close to this idea and hence I captured it to make it immortal 🙂

Taken on the streets of Airoli, Navi Mumbai. I observed this from a long distance and was prepared to make this photograph. This is not a usual sight when you live in a metro city like Mumbai. Well, a city has all its colors 🙂

The local train at Thane station. Thane station is special in terms of Railway as it is the place from where the first train started off.

Taken through the space between bricks which gave such a natural vignetting. This was taken at the Junior college I teach in Mulund. She is one of the helpers and it was around 5 PM. She might be waiting for to go home or maybe lost in some other thoughts.

Took this at Mulund, Mumbai. The institute at Mulund where I teach is in the middle of a vegetable market. I will be taking more photographs of this place soon. Keep visiting here
