There are multiple poojas for naming a child, general well being etc...
These rituals are done typically with offerings of ghee, milk etc to god via a "Homam" a fire pit, which in this cacse is a makeshift one with a builders utensil...

Didnt know you were in India...A good picture with nice details. A nice educative shot for the western audience. Shame about the shake though. But i like the framing and the details in your picture.

Interesting shot, and a perfect way to show off a bit of culture from the country.
Just a shame its not so sharp.
