Traditional artists at work.
The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi is just around the corner and artists in Goa are imparting finishing touches to their Ganeshas. The celebrations begin on September 5 when the idols will be installed in Hindu homes all over Goa for the 2-day festivities.
I visited three traditional artists over the past week. The art of making Ganesha idols has run in their families for generations.
PS: Has anyone noticed that Ganesha in recent years has lost some pounds and acquired a bit of muscle? What happened to the Lambodara of yesteryear?

On my Lufthansa A380 flight from San Francisco to Frankfurt a couple of days ago.
The refulgent Rolls-Royce Trent 900 beauties outside were a feast for the eyes. However, the design of the A380 window porthole, with its larger-than-normal distance between the interior and exterior panels, did not permit the lens a clear field of view.
