Happy Ganesh Chaturthi

This one is for Ramesh :)



At home...since the past four years we bring an eco friendly Ganesh idol home. Our prior experience of immersion at Shivaji park beach was horrifying so we switched to pure clay idol. 


Sitting pretty...


This picture is very special to me. Almost 27 years ago, my dad along with his friends started this 'Adarsh Yuva Mandal' and they started the sarvajanik Ganesh Utsav in their locality. We left the place almost 19 years ago but the other founding members are carrying on the legacy. It has gone from being a small idol to a larger than life one. 

This is my last 'spinster' Ganesh Utsav. Lol. I will be married in January and will be off to Gurgaon, Haryana where my in laws reside. I hope to make it back for this festival each year with my hubby!

Good to see more and more families switching over to the Eco friendly Ganapathy.
Wishing you in advance for the great event that will be held in January.
And yes Ganapathy celebrations are best held in Maharashtra, so keep visiting.
