PM Modi extends greetings on Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganeshutsav is the biggest festival of Maharashtra and the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) attracts people from all over the state, country and even foreign tourists during the festivities. It was shipped from Chennai.

Some also made Ganesha idols inspired by the film Baahubali.

Richa Chadha, who's often known for supporting various causes has now come forth with the upcoming festive spirit of Ganesh Chaturthi to support the initiative of Eco-Friendly Ganesha. Shiva along with fellow deity Lord Vishnu visited Earth where they fixed an elephant's head to the body of the boy and brought him back to life.

Not only the Ganesh Festival Committees (Ganesh Utsava Samitis) but households also are well-prepared to install deity Vighnaharan's handsome idols to bring in knowledge and prosperity.

Which are the most famous pandals?

Further there is also a 20 per cent rise in prices of dry fruits, cashew nuts, almonds, etc as the Ganesh festival is followed by Eid-Uz- Zuha. Almost 120 workers were involved in making the idol for the last three months. They create rubber moulds, fill them with Plaster of Paris, paint and embellish them, and then send them to buyers and vendors. "I hope you sing, dance and pray to the tune of my song during these 10 days".

Prachi Shah of COLORS' Ek Shringaar.Swabhimaan said, "This year I will be performing at the prestigious festival of Chakradhar Mahotsav on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi". With GST, the cost of raw material such as PoP, which is one of the main substance used, has gone up. "Otherwise, we may incur losses", an artisan told The New Indian Express.

What are the idols made of?

Celebrated as the Birth Anniversary of Lord Ganesha, Ganesha Chaturhi is an occasion when people worship Lord Ganesha to get bestowed with peace, prosperity, wisdom and happiness.
