Twarit Sukh: Bhakts throng Siddhivinayak temple on Ganesh Chaturthi

Updated 13 Sep 2018 10:28 AM

People are celebrating the festival with colourful processions, bustling music, and energetic dance moves.
The Hindu festival is dedicated to the Lord of new beginnings, Ganesha. The celebration is marked with the installation of the deity's idol at home and at elaborate pandals.
Celebrated with great fame in India, especially in Maharashtra, a unique effort has been made in Aurangabad city, where the Swami Ganesh Pratishthan Mandal installed an eco-friendly Ganesh idol in Kharadi village of Aurangabad.
Also, Mumbai Traffic Police has made elaborate arrangements ahead of the upcoming Ganpati Festival for smooth flow of traffic and for preventing inconvenience to commuters. Traffic Police will keep a watch at strategic locations like Girgaon Chowpatty, Shivaji Park Chowpatty, Bada Masjid Bandra, Juhu Chowpatty and Ganesh Ghat-Powai for monitoring and regulating traffic flow during procession and immersion.
Hindus in Goa are also gearing up for Ganesh Chaturthi with great enthusiasm.
Devotees in Bangalore also added a touch of eco-friendliness in their celebrations as they made an idol using sugarcane, shunning Plaster of Paris (PoP).
The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi will begin from September 13.
