With great hopes, I had reached Targena near Patna Bihar to experience a total solar eclipse. But alas, it was not meant to be. Clouds had covered the entire sky and cleared out only when the eclipse was in its last stages. Anyway, it was still a surreal experience having darkness engulf for couple of minutes.
The crowds gathered was huge, first time I saw such a huge and enthusiastic crowd assemble for a non-political event in Bihar. I was fortunate enough to have a vantage position to click these photos.
