Ganesh Chaturthi marks the birth of the elephant god, who is widely revered as Ganpati Bappa by His deities. It is a ten-day festival, which generally falls in August or September. This year Bappa will be welcomed at our homes on 13th September (Thursday). In this auspicious festival, Ganesha clay idols are placed in homes or society by creating a temporary stage. The festival ends on the tenth day; thereupon, the idol is carried in a public procession with entertaining music and immersed in a nearby river or ocean. In Mumbai alone, around 150,000 statues are immersed annually. After that, the clay idol dissolves in water, and Ganesha is believed to return to Mount Kailash. This is one of the biggest festivals in India; therefore, people love to decorate the stage uniquely.
