It’s Manjula’s and Willian’s (who’s he?) birthdays this month. First however it’s the BIG goddess herself: Chamundeshwari.
Don’t ask her age.
Hence the crowds for the free bus to the top of the Hill.
Here one day, gone the next.
So we celebrate it calmly at home.
Blue for Ganesh. Yellow for Chamundeshwari. Other partygoers: Krishna and Shiva.
Chamundeshwari, known as Durga in the north, lives at the Temple, on the hill behind our house. She famously killed the demon after which Mysore (Mysuru, if you insist) is named.
