Festivals of India: Ganesh Chaturti



There are many homes across the city that keep Ganpatis at home. Most of them are for 1.5 days while some keep them for all 11 days.

A point to be noted here is that, a majority of these Ganpatis are in shanties and slums which are so small, there isn’t even enough place for the family to stay. Yet for 11 days, the family will welcome devotees who come to pray to their favourite God!!

The photo above is a Ganpati at one of my best friend’s place. The resplendent decorations are found in every home. It is indeed a beautiful festival to be with. The Aarti or the prayer said during this is one of the most powerful ones I have ever been a part of!!
