CELEBRATING GANESH IN PARIS

August 29, 2022  •  8 Comments

I love the Ganesh Festival in Paris, especially those moments early on in the day as devotees make their final preparations. This festival both soothes my wanderlust and makes me even more grateful that I live in this ever-surprising "world city".

Hi Brenda
Thanks for showing all those beautiful colors, people and activities - it looks like very busy time. I'm sorry I couldn't hear the music, it must have added a wonderful dimension to this celebration.

Thank you for sharing dear Brenda. A Kavadi in Paris is just transforming Paris as if we were magically instantaneously transported in South India. What a bliss!
