Ganesh Chaturthi Celebrations: Day 4 | Ganpati Pandal Darshan | Eco-Friendly Ganesha.

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.

~ Kathasaritsagara

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.

  10. Wonderful. I am so stunned to see these giant beautiful sculptures of Lord Ganesha decorated so gracefully. Thank you for sharing. People should use eco-friendly Ganesha such as Water Purifying Ganesha and Fish Friendly Ganesha as much as possible to save the nature.
