I noticed this little ceremony going on as I was leaving the Vinayak temple. It’s a common practice when a person buys a new vehicle to get it blessed. This must have been a particularly auspicious day for new vehicles because there were numerous motor scooters, motorcycles, auto-rickshaws and cars lined up to get blessed. It’s not an ancient tradition — at least as far as motorcycles are concerned — but it comes from the perception of the divine that resides in everything.
