Lord Ganesha, an epitome of good luck and happiness and a lord who is worshipped immensely in India needs to be celebrated. Ganesh Chaturthi is the festival which is grandly celebrated all over India but the way it is done in Maharashtra, the scenario is completely different. The state does not believe in beginning anything new without taking the blessings of the God and thus this fiesta has huge significance for people of the land. It is a festival of Hindu culture and devotees perform a lot of rituals and customs to please Lord while he is home.
The idols of the God are installed in the houses of people where he is offered with a lot of delicacies, flowers, his favorite modaks and more.

It continues for 11 days after which the idols are immersed in the local rivers and people ask him to come in their lives again the following year.
