The arrival of the God of prosperity, goodness, peace, knowledge and wisdom, Ganeshji, is celebrated in Western India as a 10-day long festival. Though Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated all over India, in Maharashtra it is celebrated as a grand festival. The clay idol of Ganeshji is brought into our homes, or in pandals. He resides with us for few days and then is immersed in water. Here’s a collection of Ganesh idols near my home.
