Super Worm Equinox Moon

The Super Worm Equinox Moon in the Bandra sky. 'Super' because it is closest to Earth in its monthly orbit hence will appear bigger and brighter. 'Worm' because this is the time the ground starts getting warmer and the worms appear (in traditional Red Indian lore) and 'Equinox' as it is the Spring Equinox on this day.

A rare instance of a 'Vasudev' seen in Bandra east.
'Vasudev' are people believed to be incarnation of Lord Krishna. Bedecked in the distinctive headgear of peacock feathers, performers sing Vasudev songs and with nimble, delicate dance steps, whirl around presenting anecdotes from Lord Krishna's life in exchange for alms. They sing soothing, melodious notes through the villages in the morning time. Historically they belong to the Satvata tribe
