It was already 7:00 PM when I reached at Ulsoor lake Durga puja Pandal on MahaNavami (the 4th day of Durga Puja). Aarti competition was scheduled at 7:30.The entire pandal was already filled by the visitors. It was hard to find a place for stand and shoot.We went in front of the pandal and stood just behind the place Judge Panel were sitting.
Aarti competition started actually at 8:30 after all arrangements. One of the main element of the Aarti is Dhunuchi ( a pot with a source of smoke ).

This lady was a potential competitor. We were amazed by her skill and performance.
