How Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated in your city?This year Ganesh Chaturthi festival is falling on September 5, 2016. Though the festival is celebrated almost all over India but, it is particularly popular in the states of Maharashtra and Telangana.
Historically, Indian freedom fighter and social reformer Lokmanya Tilak played a key role in popularising Ganesh Chaturthi as a national festival and generating nationalistic fervour in the people of India.
The television media has also played an important role in its popularisation and nowadays even in the smaller cities and towns in the north India, mandaps are decorated and the Ganesha idol is installed followed by the immersion of the idols in rivers, the sea or other bodies of water on 1,1.5, 3, 5, 7 or 11 days.
