In contemporary Bangalore, India, sacred processions make their way through the city almost daily. The palanquins of the Gods can be frequently seen waiting in traffic jams, or under electric lines, for services and for mobility (Bissell 2007) as they navigate a broken city borne of “development.” Processions stumble over construction rubble, negotiate the endless rolling blackouts, and reroute through a gridlocked city. The irony of a God waiting is not lost on the processions’ participants as this ethnography demonstrates. Waiting in a limbo-- a kind of immobility-- and the patience it requires, forms the central narrative of many divine processions in the city, and participants often reflect upon fears of a parallel stoppage of economic forces and the moral value of mobility (Bayart’s 2007) in the contemporary world. But waiting also forces aspiration (Jeffreys 2008) through creative strategies of navigation and climbing, coalescing into a powerful political critique of global capitalism resting on the proposition that waiting is crucial to the modern experience. Unpacking one particular procession in Bangalore city, this paper aims to reflect upon the stoppage and flows of sacredness and economics, and their imaginative intertwining in a millenial city.
