Popped into Leopold's for a cold beer, one of the very few places that sell alcohol, and have been recruited as an extra in A Bollywood movie. Fame at last! early start as Roll, camera action starts at 8am.
Crowds of people Celebrating Ganesha Festival at The Gateway. Drums, chanting,singing, prayers and then the ornately decorated statues of Ganesha are taken down the steps where some 'fortunately unlucky?' person has to enter into the most disgustingly polluted water of the harbour and swim out and sink the statue of Ganesha. This is accompanied with cheers and shouts while the struggling swimmer can hardly keep his head above water. The 3 lifeguards did not look too keen to get into the water. Each family takes there turn so the drama and excitement goes on all night.
