God is omnipresent!

Photographs By: Trupti Arekar
God is omnipresent!
'Holy' is not a word usually used to describe Mumbai. However, with its slums, Bollywood divas, millionaires and mafia, and its extremes of poverty and decadence, the city might appear at first glance to be one of the most materialistic places on earth. Mumbai has a complex personality with hidden depths. Even as the courts have directed the city's civic body to demolish illegal religious structures, the high concentration of these teeming religious structures and magical shrines on streets makes it easy for even passing visitors to make progress on the road to enlightenment. The Afternoon Despatch & Courier photographer Trupti Arekar features how Mumbaikars see its deities as a combination of spirituality and creativity on the many streets.
