Happy Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh unveiled

Greetings from Pune on this Ganesh Chaturthi.

It is morning of Ganesh chaturthi and I am at my friend Shrikant’s home in Pune. Preparations are being made to install Ganesh in the little puja place in the living room — just like in millions of other homes across Maharashtra and the rest of India.

Alright, Ganesh has been installed. Here are a few pictures.

Ganesh has a nice cape.

Shrikant, Medha, Ranjani and Rohan

Shrikant tells me that this is a very eco-friendly Ganesh. He is made of clay and the the paint is organic: the yellow is turmeric and the red is a vegetable dye.

Note the M&Ms I offered to Ganesh

Ganesh is very popular here in Maharashtra. He’s universally welcomed, actually. You can even meet him in Ireland. I blogged about it a few years ago — check out Ganesh in Ireland.
