Tomorrow is Anant Chaturthi. Our favourite God will bid us goodbye, leaving us sombre and sad.
Past few days had been pleasant and full of energy. When on other days I refuse to step out of home after being back from office, now I happily agree to have a night tour to these Ganpati mandals.
We encountered a few pandals who were in mission to siphen money out of people’s pockets by giving entry to few people in the pandal at a time and then proposing pass tickets for faster entry. We chose to avoid these and visit where there was no or shorter queue. It’s all together a different feeling, full family stepping out late night, wandering in different galis, each having their own idol.
Following is Ganapati from Anjirwadi Ganesh Mandal, a mandal funded by Chagan Bhujbal.
