Devotees carry Ganesha Idols at #mahimcreek as volunteers remove leaves and flowers before immersing the idols into the sea. After 7 years I am back to shooting #GaneshaChaturthi thanks to @Instagram and #hyperlapse !
The streets lit, nights long, drums thump day and night, holiday atmosphere for some, traffic nuisance for office goers, environmentally toxic, spiritually enhancing, whatever you say #GaneshaChaturthi rocks in #Mumbai !
People stand in long queue late into the night to have darshan of #GSB ganesh mandal one of the famous Mandals in Mumbai. #GaneshaChaturthi
Beach goers enjoy a cool evening breeze as a girl sells beads to tourists at #Juhu beach. In a few days the beach will bear witness to devotees thronging in millions to immerse #Ganesha Idols! During the #GaneshaChaturthi Festival, in Mumbai alone over 150,000 idols of Lord Ganesha are immersed throughout its waterways.
Pinwheels on #Juhu beach wish you, Happy Ganesh Chathurthi !
In 1893, Lokmanya Tilak transformed annual domestic festival of Ganesh Chaturthi into a large, well-organized public event. Tilak recognized the wide appeal of the deity Ganesha as “the god for everybody”, and popularized Ganesh Chaturthi as a national festival in order “to bridge the gap between Brahmins and ‘non-Brahmins’ and find a context in which to build a new grassroots unity between them”, and generate nationalistic fervour among people in Maharashtra against the British colonial rule. #ganesh #ganeshchathurthi
