Chhath festival

We celebrated the Chhath Festival last month.  The crowd seems to only get bigger and bigger each year.  There was no question of carrying my camera while I was participating in the festival with my family and such rush.  But I did have my phone with me which I took out at the last day of the festival and took some pictures while being in the middle of the action.  I took this photo while everyone was eager to get into the water for the final ritual that involves worshiping the rising Sun.  This picture I thought captures a moment perfectly.  The moment where a woman is waiting ,eagerly and little lost, for her turn amid the crowd of other fasting devotees.
