Durga Pooja @ Ulsoor

As usual, Friday saw a flurry of activities at office, but some how, i swiped out by 6.30 and went to meet a friend @ CMH road.

After roaming around there and getting soaked in the Durga Pooja mood prevailing over the whole of Bangalore, i reached home by 9, soaked in rain.

Saturday morning i went to Shivs place and the whole day we lazed around - cracked a lot of silly jokes, cooked lunch, caught up with news from his recent Paris visit and watched some movie on TV.

Sunday morning at sharp 11, I met Nidhi and we went to see the durga pooja pandal at Ulsoor.

The pandal is made by Bengali association, and a visit to the pandal was in my agenda for quite some time. When we reached there, they where stripping the pandal; we where just in time to see it. Next year, i will visit the place before Vijayadasami.

The pooja pandal is actully a Bengali fare - lot of bengali sweetmeet shops, eateries, merry go round and pan shops - it is so sad that we visited the place as they where closing down - we really missed lot of fun and activities.

After spending some time there and freaking out on photo ops, we said good bye to the pandal, but not before treating us with a Calcutta sweet pan. Some snaps from the Pooja Pandal. You can see the whole album here.
