Preparations for the Puja( the ritualistic worshiping).
Thali (plate) of Gulab Jamuns (the brown yum yum balls, my favourite), the Swastika, Marigolds, Sweet Lime and Custard apples(the weird looking fruit), Akshat(rice), Roli(the red powder beside the akshat)
the stringed flowers
my swing for Baby Krishna
getting ready to give the baby his first bath
with water, milk and honey
bathed and dried
and we now let him be, resting, swinging.
