(15 Sep 2016) Hundreds of devotees in Mumbai gathered on the metropolis’s seashores on Thursday to bid farewell to the favored elephant-headed Hindu god Ganesha after a ten-day pageant to have a good time his beginning.
Ganesha idols of all sizes, embellished with garlands of marigolds and roses had been paraded by the streets earlier than their ritual immersion within the sea, an act that symbolises sending the god again to his legendary house within the snow-capped mountains taking all the troubles and issues of his worshipers with him.
Devotees sang and danced to beating drums in processions.
In the course of the annual 10-day pageant, Hindu households worship Ganesha, the god of information, knowledge and luck, at their properties and collectively in road corners.
All Hindu prayers start with an invocation to Ganesha.
