The Day After Diwali
Dhok Padwa and Govardhan Puja in Mhow
Nov 10 2007, Saturday
The day after Diwali is celebrated as Dhok Padwa in Mhow and Malwa. It is a day on which people meet near and dear ones. It is celebrated with much joy in Mhow. So much so that the Dhok Padwa celebrations in Mhow have become a news event. Here are some random images. Photographs I took in Mhow bazaar on Dhok Padwa.
In the villages this day is for Govardhan Puja or worship of cattle. Here are some photographs I took in village Gawli Palasiya on the same day.
