Ganpati fondly called as the elephant God, graces everyone’s homes, offices, shops. Whenever people start a new venture, he is remembered first. To honour this first remembered God, India celebrates Ganesh or Vinayaka Chaturthi- an 11-day festival. Although it is celebrated all over India, it is most enthusiastically and grandly celebrated in Maharashtra. The grandness of the festival that we see today is a result of Lokmanya Tilak’s belief of unity between different communities. He made the low-key, private festival come out in the open, amongst the public. We must say, his efforts and vision paid off. Despite their many differences, people from various religion become one during this festival. Ganesh is not just worshipped in India but various parts of the world as well. His devotees can be found in Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Nepal and China.
This festival will commence from 13th September in 2018. Visiting a loved one during this festival is one of the most delightful moments. People pay their respects for Lord Ganesha by offering him sweets, fruits, dry fruits, accessories and what not.
