- #577864Actually there is no such ritual of drum beating while carrying the Ganesha idol to pandal. However, it became a rubbish act and nuisance in society. I've seen many ridiculous behaviour and activities by Ganesh Puja organizers in Hyderabad. They perform pujas in every lane by blocking and jamming the roads for vehicles for a long more than ten days. This is completely annoying. Last year I'd suffered a lot due to this.

- #577869There is nothing new for me with this ritual. The devotees welcoming Lord Ganesha with drum beats and take them to their home or Pandals. It is very normal and old ritual of Maharashtra. We don't find any problems in traffic though it is, but again everyone here is deeply involved with Lord so have no issue at all.

- #577876Yes Naresh you go it right. We are not saying against the drum beats. But the gathering would certainly disturb others and passerby through that area.
