Dasara, our Nadahabba, auspicious period where Ma Chamundeshwari is worshiped, is celebrated with a huge gathering of people from all over Karnataka perhaps, World too.
2017, uptil date has’nt proved to be much in favour of Dasara. The rains everywhere is restricting people to enjoy the fests everywhere. The YuvaDasara, Aharamela and other events have been affected by the constant downpour of rains.
Yesterday, 27/09/2017 was the was the much awaited event of Dasara, the Open Street Festival.
I attended the event along with a group of friends with much enthusiasm and expectations. Just when I handed, the rains began. To my good, I had carried a couple of jackets which weren’t of much help later.
There were many stalls, some of clothing, some paintings, some of pottery making, some selfie frames but not much of food stalls. Even if there were a few, they were overpriced. Moreover, I did find one place with the green board. We ordered some samosa masala, sev puri and dahi puri. To my bad, the samosa was over, the puri was over. He instead gave us a cutlet (shown below), which was nasty and 2 papdi chat. Not at all worth the money. I ain’t gonna return to that outlet ever.
