Twenty long years to get the bridge up, three months from completion of construction to inauguration, and TWO opening ceremonies in one day. It's true. Do read on: http://in.news.yahoo.com/bridge-opening-twice-one-day-000000420.html

I took this picture on the last day of Durga Puja, the festival that marks the beginning of mellow skies and cooler weather.
