”Ganpati Bappa Morya” – chanted the people of Udaipur.
Lord Ganesh, the son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is one of the cutest and most lovable Indian gods amongst all. It is said that Ganesh was born on the fourth day of Magh and especially during that time there is an interconnection between Ganesh and Chaturthi.
Ganesh Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chaturthi was celebrated with religious fervor in Udaipur today. The celebration began with mouth-watering ‘modaks’ and other delicious sweets which were readied to offer to Lord Ganesh.
Everyone got together to join in the celebrations in the temples of Lord Ganesh including, Bohra Ganeshji, Pala Ganeshji, Jada Ganeshji, Dudhiya Ganeshji etc.
Clay models were established in these temples with people chanting ”Ganpati Bappa Morya” in synchronization.
Twice-a-day prayers’, visiting relatives and reunion with siblings and cousins is an integral part of this festival. The festival is synonymous with wisdom and prosperity. It will last for 10 days.
