These pictures were taken on the last day of the ten-day celebrations in our gated complex, which is why I could get a clear shot of the main lamp. The second one, showing the idol just before they took her off to the Ganges for immersion, required some sneaking behind the priest’s back, much to the excitement of my sister.
