    Wow, I didn’t know there so many ways to dress the Ganesha. Such a wonderful celebration it must’ve been. Lovely.

    Yeah, I saw the differences, it’s both amazaing but South Indians are extremely creative. Why towards the end the ganesha has to be immersed in the sea and let It go?

    It’s amazing to see how creative people are! I’ve never celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi; but I’m sure it must be so exciting! Celebrating it in Mumbai has always been on my list!

    I did not know there was a Vishnu Ganesha. In my years in Bombay, I did not sign up for the thrills of being at the Lalbaug ka raja function. Maybe a Ganesh Chathurthi festival next year in Bombay/Pune.

    Thanks for sharing this part of your culture. I love the watermelon Ganesha and the chocolate Ganesha! Were you involved in making the Ganesha in your home?

    I am surprised Chennai has so many Ganesha varieties. Very clear that I dont really celebrate festivals as much 🙂
