Cart Procession and Home Ganesh

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated yesterday and due to the festival there was a cart procession from our street temple last night and I took some photos when the cart comes close to our house. Actually there are two Ganesh temples in our neighborhood, but the only one on our street was took to the street first and until 11 pm there wasn’t a sign of procession from the other temple, so we went  asleep and I have no idea whether it was taken to the street or not.

Following is our home Ganesh, an idol made of clay and it’s supposed to dissolve into a tub of water tomorrow as per the ritual. Usually these clay idols are immersed into the sea or any other water body but we are into dissolving process at home for less than a decade. Hope u liked these photos - click for enlargement :)

The clay idols have their own charm. I am amazed at seeing one on your blog, even after seeing so many on the street :)

It's not easy to get photographs at night, but you did a good job with the procession. I enjoyed all of your photos very much.

The colors are so wonderful. The dissolving of the clay must take a while as it is a tight holding material. I guess taking its time is their purpose.

Your clay idol, Ganesh looks beautiful! Your pooja room too! We used to watch our Ganesh temple car in our street in our old house. I had blogged about it also. It looked like yours!
