Ganesh Chaturthi is a grand festival in India, devoted to Ganesha – a prime deity worshiped by Hindus. Here I like to share some photos relevant to festival at home and Ganesha procession from our street temples.
The clay idol of Ganesha, bought for the festival at home
Feast in front of the idol as a dedication and part of worshiping
A worshiping process (burning camphor) before the clay idol was put to immerse
Clay idol of Ganesha immersed in tub water to dissolve... to be poured for plants and shrubs once turned liquid. This is a process we have been practicing for last 5-6 years, rather immersing into water bodies that result water pollution.
