Re: Happy Ganesh Chaturthi and Ganesh festival to all

Yes ... happy Ganesh Chaturthi to us all. I do miss being in Mumbai.

Too bad ... seas, rivers, and water all over Maharasthra will be polluted with tons of toxic paints, chemicals, and what not. I don't think Lord Ganesha approves of the way we mess up his abode.

kyon naya panga le raha hai????

and the traffic Jams... I had to walk from SEEPZ to JUHU every year as the vehicles never moved. Lucky me I am outside India for a while.

By the way I use to love those mid-night old movies in Ganesh pandals during these days...

Now Ramzan and Ganpati is together this year..the cities will be live even at 4 AM in the morning!!!

I have to admit Govt does pretty good job atleast in this regard. Its people who do not follow guidelines. We see lots of "Nirmalya" (used flowers and other pooja things) collection bins, but very few people put nirmalya in it. People like to throw into the water. Some people are even worse. They throw garbage in bins which is meant for "Nirmalya" which drives away 100's of people who would have used it otherwise. Then we see local tanks built just for wisarjana which could avoid pollution in sea and river, but no ;people will always go to sea and rivers.

Then you see those huge wierd idols which is really pathetic. Ganesha made of chocolate, super man ganesha, 30 feet ganesha wearing half-pant Next day if you go to Girgaum chowpaty you will see heads, legs of those big idols lying around. This is no respect to the god.

Re: Happy Ganesh Chaturthi and Ganesh festival to all

Yes ... unfortunately so. There is so much we can learn from the Christians, the Muslims, Buddhists, Jews and all the other religions; they too carry on centuries old traditions but always keeping the spirit (behind such traditions) alive. Except us Hindus ... with every passing year ... bereft of the substances, we get louder ... tasteless ... and crude ... practicing a mockery of time-honored cultural customs. I'm not just speaking of artificial paints and chemical laden Ganesh visarajan routine as practiced in the state of Maharasthra ... there are so many more despicable acts we commit in the name of following traditions and our religious rituals.

I'm not and we cannot be against practicing our rituals ... of course not ... but this is not the way ... this was not how it was done. In olden times and for centuries ... from generations to generations ... a month or two before the festive event ... womenfolk collected clay like mud from the nearest waters ... added to it cotton for strength and wooden sticks for support ... and every house hold "made" own statutes of Lord Ganesha for the visarjan day. This was a spritual experience in which men, women, and children participated. Home made statutes were first coated with watered white clay for base ... and later ... painted over with bright colors ... natural colors. Dried and powdered yellow flowers and green leaves mixed with water provided the paint. Those were exciting days for women, children, and entire villages ... families visited each other ... to admire ... and to pray to Lord Ganesha. So was the tradition ... and see we have done to it.

And we wonder ... why so much apathy.

Red face Re: Happy Ganesh Chaturthi and Ganesh festival to all

tantu ji, the Mumbai Muncipality does a good job, but some devotees dont get it.

As for Ganeshji, I pray to Him that let Indian govt. not file one more affidavit that there was no Lord Ganesha. Poor Lord Ram is already declared an non entity!


Where is BJP and Bajrang Dal and VHP? WHy are all of them behaving worse than eunuchs or people with permanent Erecticle Dysfunction?

Re: Happy Ganesh Chaturthi and Ganesh festival to all

Used to love Ganeshotsav in Pune. A lot of fun times and memories from that time. The noise and traffic did not bother me much. However sorry to say but last 10 years or so, this festival has become an excuse for extortion in the name of 'wargani'. We call it our insurance premium, its due every year to the hoodlums who run the various sarvajanik mandals. Last years cost was more than Rs 10K. This year so far Rs. 20K. I am sure this is not what Lokmanya had in mind when he started the practice.
