Ganesh Chaturthi 2019: Devotees take up varied themes to welcome Ganesha

Updated 03 Sep 2019 07:55 AM

While Ganesh Chaturthi is about celebrating the Ekadanta lord's birth, a lot of effort goes in perfectly nestling the god into his makeshift abode. From Chandrayaan-2 themes to a simple flowery decoration, each devotee is in a race with another to put the best set-up together.
While popular culture has ample representation of Ganesh Chaturthi and its vibrant celebrations, a little is known about the beautiful, elegant themed decorations that Maharashtrians do before welcoming Vignaharta to their homes.
"Last year it was a cave-themed decor made of balloons and paper mache at my home, but this year it is Chandrayaan-2 as it has been in the news of late," said Rishabh, who owns a manufacturing business.
