60th Birthday celebrations, Delhi

I got the wonderful opportunity to document the very traditional and beautiful Shasthiabdhapoorthi (60th birthday celebrations) of our family doctor a few months back.

Shashtiabdhapoorthi is a Sanskrit name for a special ceremony on a person's sixtieth birthday. Shashtiabdhapoorti is celebrated on completion of 60 years of age of a person. This term is derived from Sanskrit in which Shashti means sixty; Abda–year; Poorthi-completion.
