Today is the annual worship day of Lord Vishwakarma, who is the Hindu god of all things related to engineering and industry. This photo was taken in the clay-workers' colony in Kolkata where these finished idols of Lord Vishwakarma are waiting to be carried off to different parts of the city. This also marks the beginning of the festive season which will include the biggest festivals in India, Durga Puja and Diwali.
Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
