Millions celebrated the arrival of Lord Ganesha ( The Elephant headed God) in India, in particular Maharashtra, with much fanfare and Joy.
However I was looking Skywards at the trees with leaves which were changing their hues into Enchanting shades of Vermillion.
Important Festivals in India mark a change in Season and so does The 10 day Ganapati festival. The Monsoons are at their end, hot and sultry summer months are coming to an end and the warm touch of the Sun’s Rays are now pleasing.
The first Fallen Leaf in red , indicates Autumn is but a breath away.
As the single leaf will change to a heap Winter will knock at the doors and mark the arrival of the most pleasant months in the Sub Continent of India.
The Red Vermillion Leaves and the arrival of Lord Ganesha are auspicious indeed.
AS I heard Drums beat in the distance I ran to have a glimpse of the Processions which accompany Lord Ganesha in the Shaniwar Wada region in Pune , Maharashtra, India.
It was then I saw the Solitary Red Leaf on the Street and I gazed up towards the Sky to take the Photograph that appears as the featured image.
Nature had discretely and beautifully conveyed a message to me. ” Autumn is coming.”
