After two years of COVID hiatus, Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations have kicked off in the country with a bang. Unique themes, thematic decorations and huge idols marked the festivities this year with people immersing in a devotional spirit as pandemic restrictions have been lifted.
Bappa is finally here. The God of new beginnings and remover of all obstacles (Vighnaharta) has come home to bless His devotees on the pious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi.
Any puja begins with invocation to Vighnaharta Ganesh and the making of idol in itself is considered no less than worshipping the Lord. Take a quick tour of this idol making workshop at Old Town area in Bhubaneswar.
