Ganesha Celebrations 2010

Ganapati Bappa Moraya!!! 

As always we celebrated the Ganesha Festival at our house. 
The theme that we selected this year was that of "Ashtavinayak", with the 8 ashtavinayak moorthis surrounding
the main idol. The 8 moorthis were specially made-to-order by a "Ganesh-moorthikar" at Lalbaug, Parel. The main idol is also from Lalbaug (Lalbaugcha Raja).
We also decided to make the outside temple (makar) at home this time. The entire set is thus made at home using thermocol sheets (styrofoam). We carved out the entire sets using blades/pen knives and painted these at home. Everyone contributed their bit towards making this temple set. It was exciting experience and the whole family enjoyed doing this during the last 10~15 days.
Of course, we have also included snaps of all the delicacies that we could enjoy on the first day.
 We missed all of you who couldn't make it this time and hope you enjoy the photos. The poojas continued for the 10 days until Wednesday (22nd).
I have now also updated the Ganpati Visarjan photos which is a separate album. Pls click the Visarjan album link below...
