Images from Bangalore around Dusshera Time

in festivals,India,Travel

I clicked this picture in Jayanagar in Bangalore two years back. In India banana leaves are used in may festivals and I found it quite interesting that the traffic police booth was decorated with it on Ayudh Pooja. I have not seen anything like this in the North India, where I have lived for most of my life.

This second picture is clicked around Bangalore, where a festival procession got our car stranded. So I got out stretched my legs and clicked a few pictures. The colors most definitely are striking.

And I think Vishkarma Pooja is held in the north too but I have not seen such decorations here.

I’ve seen taxis in Calcutta decorated with banana leaves on the occasion of Vishwakarma Pooja.:)
