Ganesh Chaturthi

Yesterday was the 1st day of Ganesh Chaturthi, a Hindu festival that can last upto 10 days. People can have a community idol for celebration like the one above or get a small one to celebrate at home. You may celebrate it for a day or 3/5/710 days depending on your convenience/affordability/ability 😊

The festival is observed with great enthusiasm in many parts of India, especially in the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh.

The festival typically lasts for 10 days, with the grand culmination on Anant Chaturdashi. On this day, the Ganesha idols are taken in processions to be immersed in rivers, lakes, or the sea. This ritual is known as "Ganesh Visarjan." It symbolizes the temporary nature of life and Ganesha's return to his celestial abode.

Many communities come together to organize public celebrations, erecting large pandals with massive Ganesha idols. These communal celebrations foster a sense of unity and devotion.
