Ganesh Comes Home

As your friendly neighbourhood Metblogger had promised, here are quick snapshots of the start of Ganesh Festival.

Tomorrow, Sunday, is the Ganesh Chaturthi. Chaturthi is the fourth day of the lunar calendar – fifteenth day being the full moon. The festival starts from this day although the statue is brought home the previous day. In some places, especially the offices and factories, the statue is brought on the previous working day which happened to be a Friday this year.

And here are the photos.

This is how many housing societies and individuals bring home Ganesh. Often there is a band playing in front of the idol. It was there in this case too.

In my first post, Ganapati Bappa Moraya I had mentioned a Ganesh I had purchased from Nirmitee the shop. Here it is.
