Ganesh Chaturthi, celebrated in honour of the God Ganesha, the elephant headed God. He is the God of removing obstacles and the God of new beginnings and wisdom. I had even written a post about this festival last year since we celebrate this festival every year by brining Ganesha idol at home.
During this festival, people bring home Ganesha idols either for 1 and a half day or 3 days or 5 days or for 10 days. At my place we bring Him home for 5 days and invited all our friends and families to seek his blessing. I find this festival full of fun and happiness. Today is the 2 nd day of the festival and on the fifth day we will immerse the idol in water.
During the five days, we perform rituals and have pujas (singing in the praise of The Lord). I always feel every year on the last day, because He becomes a part of our family.
I just wanted to share few pictures of the Ganpati idol at my place.
Happy Ganesh Chaturthi everyone !!
Ganpati Bappa Morya !!
