Tens of 1000’s of Hindu worshippers in Mumbai bid a conventional farewell on Monday to Ganesh, the favored elephant-headed Hindu God after a ten-day competition to rejoice his delivery.
Big-sized Ganesh idols had been paraded by way of the streets earlier than their ritual immersion within the sea to mark the pure cycle of creation and dissolution.
Amongst them was “Lalbaug Cha Raja” or the King of Lalbaugh, named after the Mumbai neighbourhood recognized for its elaborate celebrations of the Ganesh competition.
Worshippers sang hymns and danced carrying Ganesh idols, or ferried statues of the deity in adorned vans.
Through the annual competition, Hindu households worship Ganesh, the God of data, knowledge and luck, at their properties and collectively on avenue corners.
All Hindu prayers start with an invocation to Ganesh, who believers say has the ability to take away all obstacles.
