Respect the elements

Chhat pooja is dedicated to the Sun to thank it for making the life on Earth possible! I so love this idea of chhat pooja to show our gratitude to the Sun!
.
.
Chhat Pooja is typically done by the river to offer prayer and #arag to the setting and rising sun.. But this time, long distance traveling seemed quite tiresome for me so, mom performed the rituals on the terrace. Sharing a glimpse of #ChhatPooja

May the Sun god bless you! :)

India is a land of festivals - today was the culmination of the three days festival of ‘Chhath’ celebrated in some of the states of India. Ladies gathered on the river bank even before dawn, stayed half immersed in the water and worshipped the Sun god for the well being of their family !! #puja #festival #chhathpuja #indianfestival #hindufestival #hindureligion #mythsandlegends #sungod #festivalsofindia #riverbank #nasik #nashik #godavaririver #india_undiscovered #exploringindia #indiadiaries #india #dipintheriver #mythsofindia #legendsofindia #worship #worshippingthesun #atdaybreak

Preview of the new 3 foot by 4 foot sign ima carry while riding my #eboard in #nyc & when I do random street performances accompanied by loud speakers.
It's funny cause I purposely designed the first sign to have the contact info really small because
1. The intent was to stamp into people's minds What's Your Passion which seems to be a Super effective way to befriend a lot of people by finding out their passions/interests then assisting them with contacts & resources. Haven't explained much of the social networking aspect of da #appidea but Whats Your Passion is the foundation of everything.
2. I know people would be hating & talking shit just cuz I'm carrying a sign (not my first rodeo) & it kinda cracked me up thinking about how ridiculously STUPID I'm gona make EVERY single one of them look when I come through SHWAAAAGIN out dancing/rapping/singing & when they hear about my strategies & this app were putting together.
This New sign will make it a tad bit more clear on WHO Da Fuk we are to put it briefly.
People liked to hate on me even b4 2012 cuz that's how life is when you young colored & fly & that's why I understand many of these kids in the hood honestly. But that's a whole other story. But people like to hate w/o knowing about me, assuming im simple minded cause I'm tatted up or whatever the fuk they be thinking but there will be jokes cracked on these foolish judgmental jackasses til the END of fucking time. 😂😂😂
Like I said before FUK ALL you adults who don't like me or think im a piece of a shit cause well see who the youth look up & respect the most & who's considered the leader of the world in 10-20 years when all those young kids become adults. I DOES this shit, recognize DOPE shit when you see it & stop being a Corny ass bandwagoner follower. SWEERRVVEEEE

#Chath “MahaParva” is the most important festival of Bihar.
It is an Ancient Vedic festival which is dedicated to Sun (Surya Dev) & his wife UMA (chatthi maayiya) , in order to thank them for bestowing the bounties of life on earth and to request the granting of certain wishes.
.
There are several theories as to why chath is celebrated. According to one of the theories , when Shri Raam Came back to Ayodhya from his exile of 14 years he was advised by his priests to perform a Yajna for the supreme power- Surya devta. His Wife Queen Sita along with Shri Raam did this extremely strict penance of 4 days in form of Chath. Since then its been practiced by the people of Mithila & parts of Ayodhya.

In non of the cultures of the world a setting #Sun is worshipped , Chatt is a unique festival where both the forms of Sun is worshipped i.e The Sunset & the Rising sun. Chath celebrates the life and death, rich & Poor, have and have not’s, at the same time, in the form of rising and setting Sun.
Chatt also brings forth the concept of “Ardhnareshwar” in nature. The Masculine form of Sun is worshipped in ‘Bhorka Argh’(Rising Sun) whereas the feminine side of Sun is celebrated in ‘sajhaka Argh’(Sun set). The Sun God and his wife Uma are two different individuals with the same identity, the energy that provides LIFE to the earth.

Wishing everyone a Happy Chath !! #MaithiliChitrakari

Chhat unlike any other festival doesn't include any idol or statue worship in temple. Natural phenomenon like rising sun & departing sun is worshipped which is the driving force behind all lifeforms on this earth.🙏 Jai Chatti Maiya..

During Navratris, as I headed for Durga Puja and waited at one of the stations, a girl offered me help to apply nail paint... I think that was really sweet...my heart smiled on my lips.😊A little later, none of the autos were willing to go towards C.R Park for obvious reasons. Startled we waited, one of them suggested to take metro to its nearest station. We hopped on and saw some sari-clad girls who appeared to be going same way. We got to know the exact station to get down at. As we walked, entered C.R Park & asked for pandal directions, a guy told us where there will be rush and what we should avoid. We followed. Post darshan, as we were running late, we met an autowala who suggested we should avoid traffic and go back to take metro. We agreed. And, were able to complete this entire outing in less than anticipated time.
Sometimes, people turn out to be a sweet surprise for you and everything seems alright.
And sometimes you just have to let the universe take over because it is the coolest buddy one can have and your best guide EVER!! ♥

Every year this festival comes and I can't help getting nostalgic about my childhood memories of chhath Pooja back there in Bokaro. We used to burn more crackers during chhath then diwali and getting up early to be on the ghats used to be fun.
However, today I won't deny in accepting the fact that I don't remember the rituals of this mahaparv in detail. But, totally aware of the importance of this 4day festival of ours which demands utter dedication, will power and indulgence.
Chhath does not involve any idol worship and sun god and chhathi maiya are worshipped for bestowing bounties on life and earth. May the divine light of this festival fulfills each one of ours lives with the same peace prosperity and health.

p.s. environmentalists consider it as one of the most eco-friendly friendly Hindu festival.
Also, eagerly waiting for the thekuas @swati__ssuman

Portrait of a chhath puja devotee.
.
Chhath puja is celebrated in Bihar, UP and Nepal with a great zeal and devotion. The devotee fasts for nearly two days.
.
Being a Bihari myself, I needed the portrait of a devotee for my portfolio and the story. This portrait required lots of juggling between my late hour work till 1:00am and ability to reach ghat early morning at 5:00am.
.
I managed somehow to reach to the ghat early morning when it was raining. So, my task was to protect camera, beat the dim light with high ISO and look for stunning devotees for the portrait. Thanks to my new buddy, Nikon D750, which has very good high ISO performance. So I bumped up the ISO to 2000 to take this portrait in a low light. Such a low light that you can barely see anyone's face. I compromised on the grains and clarity of the picture, but the trade-off was to get the portrait.
.
It was important for me to get the picture, without bothering about the quality. Happy, that the quality isn't too bad either.
