When it comes to celebration, the Silver City is streets ahead of other cities in the state. Whatever the occasion, the residents of the city celebrate each and every festival with characteristic fervour and gaiety that has become part of the city’s ethos.

On Monday, the Millennium City celebrated Ganesh puja with customary zeal. Despite of incessant rain, the city came alive with people in large numbers thronging the numerous puja pandals –magnificent in marvellous decoration and sparkling lights – to offer prayers. The atmosphere was one of devotion and religious fervour as people from all walks of life participated in the celebrations with equal enthusiasm.
