Ganpati Celebrations beginning with Ganesh Chaturthi have been gaining popularity across Gurgaon over the last few years. We can see big and small beautiful Ganpati idols all decked up in stores, ready to be invited into homes and communities with pomp and show on this 2nd September.
With religious sentiments, people are also very conscious of the environment and prefer and demand eco-friendly Ganpati. Many individuals and organizations are holding kids workshops to teach children to make their own Ganesha with clay and water-soluble colours. Most artists and stores are selling clay idols which can easily dissolve in water. Another trend capturing attention is Plant-a-Ganesha. Clay idols with seeds of plants like tulsi, basil, etc in them can just be immersed with water into a gardening pot and Ganpati ji takes the form of a plant in few days.
Maharashtrians celebrate this festival with much pomp and show hosting many community events across the city. Sarvajanik Ganesh Mahotsav Samiti will be celebrating the Utsav at Sector 27 HUDA Community centre. This year Samiti has brought in 500 eco-friendly idols from Maharashtra of all sizes. While the largest one will be placed for the main Mahotsav, other idols will be taken by the Maharashtrian community living in Gurgaon to their homes.
A five feet tall eco-friendly Ganpati will be placed at the Mahotsav at Sector 27 on 2nd September morning. On the same evening, the Maha-Aarti will be performed at 7.30 pm together by 101 couples. One can even book our aarti in advance for any day of the celebration. The events will run from 2nd to 7th September with various music programs, plays, kids activities, cooking and rangoli competitions, etc. every evening. The Visarjan yatra will begin at 9am on 8th September morning.
Our city and homes will be blessed with the ‘Vighnaharta’ coming and bringing in happiness and glory for all.
