Navaratri special!

When you mention the festival of Navaratri, generally people think of Bengali Durga pooja and their incredibly beautiful Durga idols; or the Gujarati Garba dance on grounds for Falguni Pathak's performance. But in this post I will introduce you all to the Navaratri celebrations at my place Mangalore.
Navaratri literally means 9 nights. We worship 9 incarnations of Goddess Durga. Here are the 9 incarnations in pics.

Lonely boat!

A moment of storm and then,
Lonely as never before!
The picture was taken by me in Thaneerbavi, Mangalore. It is one of the beaches in Mangalore, a quite special one at that. You go to the bank of Gurpura river to find Sulthan Battery watch tower (4kms away from the city), constructed in 1784 by Tipu Sultan  to prevent English warships from entering the Gurupura river. Then you cross the river by boat and then walk for 2 minutes to reach the beach.
Hope you liked the picture.

P.S.: Please answer the poll at the top right part of this page. Thanks.
