Ganapati Bappa Morya! Pudhchya Varshi Lavkar Ya!!!

1151st BLOG POST -->>

             The roars, sounds, celebrations, prayers, get-together, cultural functions, DJ, dancing, singing, bhajans, keertans, worship- all has come to an end today. Ganesh Chaturthi ends with a high and the festival is going to be missed for next 365 days. Living in Maharashtra since childhood, this festival has become a part of my soul. Though I try to remain away from the celebrations as I do not oblige with the way devotees celebrate a Godly event. The birth of Lord Ganesha is celebrated for 10 days. He is considered to be the most auspicious God in Hindu Literature and therefore worshiped before any God in any festival, function or event. That's his charisma which attracts devotee towards this particular festival. 

          This Ganesh Chaturthi has been very special for me. I am kind of person who loves the four-walls of his bedroom. If anyone tries to excite me by exaggerating a plan of trip, camp, day-out, I am still the least interested person and never ever my nerves ask me to step out and reach destinations that might change my life or its approach. A family friend called us for 2-days celebration of Ganeshotsav at their home. I was skeptic but then I thought, let's do it for a change. And these 2 days have really changed my approach and now I feel I have come more closer to this Festival and whole feeling of getting closer to God and heaven. 

          After that when I returned back home, my mother forced me to visit more paandals in my town. The day was amazing seeing various beautiful and admiring idols of Lord Ganesha. I would like to share few pics of my moments this Ganesh Chaturthi. I am sure that if you aren't Maharashtrian, you will get your tickets booked for 10 days next year. :-)

        I am sure all the Maharashtrians must have got nostalgic and rest would have started thinking of experiencing the festival in the state once. :-) 

P.S.: This was written on the day of Visarjan but unfortunately couldn't publish it because of snags.
