The holiday season officially kicked off this weekend. The Muslims are celebrating Eid, the Hindus are beginning the Ganesh festival, the Christians start up the Mount Mary cathedral Bandra Fair tomorrow, and the Jews mark Rosh Hashanah. The crescent moon is eagerly sighted from the rooftops, plaster elephant gods are paraded through the streets, firecrackers echo between the buildings, and shofar horns are blown beneath the Gateway of India. All in all, a loud, crazy, riotous season has begun, and we’ll all be lucky to have a good night’s sleep any time in the next two weeks.
