I was looking forward to enjoy this Ganesh Chturthi in Mumbai which i have heard a lot. Though our society is not having a common Puja for this occasion, many houses in our building have kept puja and they are doing so for many years.
|Ganapati @ my friend's place|
This is my first Ganesh Chaturthi in Mumbai and these are among few idols which i got to see. The last one was at our friends place and we visited her yesterday for Aarti. With the famous track by Lata Mangeshkar, they performed the Aarti and we all took the blessings of Lord Ganesha. The lord will be at their house for 5 to 7 days and we all have decided to join the immersion.
My neighbour also keep a Ganapati at her house for a day and half. She is doing it for last sixteen years and yesterday they went for the immersion which we could not join sadly. But we went few places to see the Elephant God. The roads were crowded and people were dancing, enjoying with the beat of Drums and playing with colors. It was loads of fun.
Ganapati Bappa Moreya !!!
