(Shot a few weeks ago)
Coming from the rather Hindu dominated neighborhoods of Bangalore, I was pleasantly surprised to see these on Moharram night. .
These small temporary shaamiyanas were put up, with shiny and bright lights and several people praying. Each of these stalls had an adjunct unit acting as a 'sabeel' and insisted on giving free sweet drinks to all. .
Some of the men casually sat around on their scooters staring at the 'festivities' engaging in casual talk. The trees, the street, the lights and colours were all united with the people that night.
Strange how familiar I am with this setting during Ganesh Chaturthi.
