Durga Puja 2008 : Moha Soptomi At Shivaji Park

The organizers had just announced the final round of Moha Soptomi pushpanjai ,when I entered Shivaji Park puja. The puja at Shivaji Park boasts of the largest number of people attending its puja , which may be quiet true. Other than the traditional Durga Puja meal (Bhog) ,shops selling ethnic merchandise (including saree ,shantiniketan bags) remains an attraction for the devotees to visit Shivaji park.

Ok here again (like last year) the serpentine 'bhog' queue was annoyingly long. My inner heart (which is truly Indian) would never allow me to become a part of such queues.Hence me & my colleague Venkata headed towards one of the shop 'Namita Caterers' for some delicious Maacher Jhol & bhat (fish curry & rice). We were hungry & I must say it was a real long wait for 40 minutes before the meal was served. But do I look tired here ?

Naah ..50 Rs for Maacher Jhol ,Bhat & Dal was worth waiting !
