Festival is still on...

We went to Powai lake last evening where Lord Ganesha was given a send-off on the fifth day. On the way we saw a lot of people caarrying their Ganapati and dancing. The place was heavily crowded. On reaching the spot they performed the aarti and finally handed over the idol to the trained people there for immersion.

 immersion spot

Individuals could not perform immersion as there were specially appointed help guards wearing Yellow t-shirts helping people in the process. They were carrying the idols on two specially buit boats into the deeper side of the lake and did the immersion while carrying the smaller idols in their hands swimming into the water.

It was a nice watchable sight for me as i never saw this before. Every one one was so delighted and it was so sweet of them to allow me the chance of taking few pictures of the lord during Aarti. I would love to go for the final day immersion to see much fun and fair.


Children with their Ganapati

Street vendors were selling some toys and decorative items there and ofcourse i also checked in few items.
