Celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi


The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi gets started with the placement of Lord Ganesha idol. Though the craze amongst the people for the festival can be seen before a fortnight but the actual magic spreads when the day arrives. The idols are placed in the pandals and many people worship Lord Ganesha at their homes. Generally, family members make time together to bring Ganesh to their homes by chanting the mantra Ganapati Bappa Morya.

These idols are generally sculpted at Kumbharwada and Pal, small towns in Maharashtra, where three to four generations of sculptors engraves and lends the final touches with eco-friendly colors. At the public places, idols as high as 30 to 40 feet are installed with themes from Indian temples and palaces as their backdrop. The Lord Ganesha idol is bejeweled with tonnes of heavy gold and silver metals.

For the ten days, Maharashtrians prepare a main sweet dish called 'modak'—which is a favorite sweet dish of Lord Ganesha. It is a delicious dumpling made from rice or wheat flour stuffed with pure grated coconut or desiccated coconut.
