For the last three years, I have been traveling to Mumbai for Ganesha festival. This year, I decided to head there during Dashera. I missed the excitement and celebration that happens in Mumbai during this particular festival. As compared to that, Bangalore was rather dull. Nevertheless, I got to get around the town to see people excited about bringing home their most adored God. I went to RV road to capture some beautiful idols of my favourite God.
Gandhi Bazaar was full of road side stalls selling Banana plants, flowers and sugar cane. It was very lively there.
Preethi cooked some delicious food that we ate after offering to Lord Ganesha.
In the evening, I went to Yediyur lake to witness the visarjan but it was so crowded that I could not see anything in detail.
I also visited the most famous Ganesh Utsav that happens every year in Basavangudi (Where I live). The "Pendal" was very impressive; somewhat in line with those in Mumbai.
