Diwali 08(Lenz)

with one comment

Tuesday the 28th was Diwali and our New Year’s day fell on the 29th — the Festival of Lights — unfortunately I could not go home for the celebration — but staying back — i witnessed a beautiful array of colour and light — mixed with the people — families -&- friends

The temple (Rameshwar) down the road along with Sahara Computers organized an evening filled with fireworks — Celina Jaitley – Kim Sharma & Upen Patel attended as well (Bollywood Actors) as did Claudia Henkel but I don’t think anybody recognized her immediately — oh and Jacob Zuma (president of the ruling party of our sweet country) — but anyway enough of them — enjoy every photo — live through the night in the next few minutes

^Almost every attempt at capturing the fireworks were hampered with the street lights
Guess I have still much to learn


^the Fire Brigade was a must at the venue – not the house the Temple


^Rushil — Mitesh


^I could not wait for the temple to start — so i ‘played’ with the truck


^and so it began


^i know the framing wasn’t perfect — but i did not want the street light in the frame
so i only managed to capture this


^Hitesh & his daughter


^Lucky & Kashmira


^Viks & Yana


^Bogs & wife


^Lucky – Sheelin – Ragas


^Vix enjoying the lights and looking after his daughter


^looking up — this was truly something


^i know this is not really good — but if you were there — you would have seen the streets
light up beautifully — look at the next 2


^Tusrika – Dina – Amesh


^Padma – Bhanu – Ekta


^Prashil


^you could call them my grandmothers — Vanitamami & Niroogigi


^that’s my uncle on the left – Vijay


^he was the best dressed boy by far


^JB & Manisha


^Mits and Dips


^JB — Me — & Shyam (my cousin)


^Sheelin & Rohit


^Kamal & wife


^singing & dancing the night away


^JB & myself


^Viks & JB


^Amesh roaming around for a good party


^Sheetal enjoying the tunes

^Family photos are always nice — lots of colour


^Tusrika — styling


^Suresh — its hard to strike a pose


^Manoj – Hitesh’s brother


^and as the night drifts away — rest the heart — now filled with the dreams
a future


^and this is me on the day — cool — calm and laid back
