Lord Ganesha Festival Marches On


Not even rain could stop the annual chariot festival.

I live right across from the Sri Varasiththi Vinaayagar Hindu Temple and can hear the drum beating and chanting throughout the day and night. The Tamil Hindu festival causes minor traffic chaos but it's all good. It's only once a year and appears to be a huge affair.
