Blessing

Here are a series of pics that I took at the Kapaleeswarar Temple festival. Initially, I did not want to post them on the blog as they were of no particular interest. In this ritual parents let their babies be placed near the deity to seek the goddess' blessing.
As I was going through the images I noticed an interesting aspect I had captured unintentionally... There was this kid sitting at the base of the deity assessing blessings in a more tangible form. His interest in the `hundi' (donation box) I found quite amusing...
