Traveling with the god

India is the land of Gods. And there are different customs related with the same. In this photograph a man is carrying the idol of God 'Vishwakarma' (in the Hindu mythology, who is believed to the creator the world) for it’s immersion in the river 'Ganges'. The idol is being carried in the dickey of an ambassador car, which is quite unusual and weird. The uniqueness of this journey made me document the moment.
