Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the biggest festival of Hindu philosophy and India. Though an occasion of national celebration, Ganesh Chaturthi is being celebrated with extreme enthusiasm in the state of Maharashtra and other western region of the country. During the days of British rule in India, Balgangadhar Tilak (Lokmanya Tilak) revived this ancient celebration in current form. He transformed Ganesh chaturthi celebration into an occassion of public gathering and interest. People set lord Ganesha in a Mandap almost in every street and together to the lorad worship for 11 days from Ganesh Chaturthi to Ganesh Chaturdashi. People also bring the lord Ganesha in their homes during these days.
May lord Ganesh bless you all.
