Hail to thee of auspicious form,
whose head is crowned with a garland of stars...
I adore thy trunk flung up straight in the joy of the dance,
so as to sweep away the clouds...
Destroyer of obstacles,
I worship thy snake adorned body...
the treasure house of all success.
Day 4 | Mumbai Ganpati Pandal Hopping | Eco-Friendly Ganesha (Theme - Lord Ganesha with His Army of Mice):
The huge Ganpati Pandal in a narrow gulli or lane.
Welcome, please come in!
The Army of Mice: Singing, praising the Lord.
The eco-friendly Pied Piper Ganesha in the center,
amid His army of mice.
The Ganesha is made of paper and paper-pulp only,
materials in tune with mother nature.
Amid dhols and drums, on the 7th day of the festival
the Ganesha alongwith His mice army will be immersed in a
man-made tub of water right outside the pandal.
P.S.: This year, come along with me for Ganesh Pandal darshan from Mumbai on My Yatra Diary... visiting the very friendly Ganesha, peeping into one pandal each day.
