Durga mata visarjan : The Delhi version

I missed the Durga mata visarjan last time in Delhi but made sure I attended it this time round. I was invited by my friend and fellow photographer Nilakkhya dutta to join the celebration and be a part of the visarjan(Immersing the idol in Yamuna). I knew this had to be something special and I hopped in with the group. The idols are first worshiped by women and then they are loaded into trucks. The trucks then take these idols to Ghats of Yamuna where the immersion takes place. Here is my narration through pictures.
