Ganapati Bappa Morya….!

Every year month of August/September brings along bundle of joys in the form of festivals which are my most favorites like Ganapati festival,Navratra etc. Yesterday was Ganesh Chaturthi..its a day on which Lord Ganesha is believed to bestow his presence on earth to all devotees..Though this festival is celebrated all over India, it is most elaborate in Maharashtra,Goa,Gujrath,Karnataka and AP. Atmosphere in every household is very exciting, pleasant and very cheerful during these 10 days, people do visit their near and dear ones..families,frenz plan get together to celebrate Ganpati Festival together…

For me,the main attraction during this festival is ummm….. “Modaks” 😀 This
time it was more special for me bcoz
early morning V declared that he will be preparing Modaks for us..being a good cook he worked bit hard to prepare those Modaks by evening 😉 but my wait till eve was all worth…

Every year Bappa comes for 10 days…brings happiness in our life..bless us with his choicest blessings and moves on… the statue is
taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with dancing, singing, and fanfare to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of his devotees. All join in this final procession shouting “Ganapati Bappa Morya, Purchya Varshi Laukar ya”
