Ganapati Bappa....

I was invited to a friends family for the 'ganapati' pooja, on occasion of 'Ganesh Chaturthi', the festival starting from today... there is a custom to 'install' small ganesha idols in many homes and worship Shri Ganesha. The worship lasts an odd number of days (from 1 to 11 days, sometimes 13)....
The festival is largely celebrated all over India, many residential area's come together and do the rituals on large scale with many cultural programs and social gathering's....
