I saw Sunday

                                          Clay idols of Laxmi - the Goddess of Wealth

These are clay idols of Laxmi - the Goddess of Wealth taken during my recent visit to Pune. They are not factory made but are done by hand by individuals. Entire streets are lined with bright flowers in orange, red, white. The fragrance of jasmine garlands is in the air as people get busy shopping for their favourite festival - Diwali.

A lovely picture! (I clicked on it and looked at the larger version,) those clay idols of Laxmi and all the colour is beautiful, and it was bought to life by your words. :-)

All those rich, bright colours are so cheerful - just right for Diwali, full of light.
