Ganesh Chaturthi 2021 Celebrations: How Ganesh Chaturthi is Celebrated in Delhi, Mumbai, Tamil Nadu And Other States of India
India is a land full of festivals and Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Ganeshotsav or Vinayaka Chaturthi, is celebrated with much zeal and zest across the country. It’s a 10-day festival which began yesterday with the installation of Lord Ganesha idol in most households. Later, it culminates with the idol procession that leads to Ganesha Visarjan – which means immersing the idol of Ganapati Bappa in sea waters. This year, however, the Covid-19 pandemic has put a halt to large-scale celebrations for devotees in most parts of the country for the second year in a row. It’s also advised that people celebrate the festival in their homes and avoid visiting crowded places owing to the coronavirus cases.
Here we have curated a list of some of the cities in India where the festival is usually celebrated with much pomp and fervour. Take a look.
