Ganeshotsav - a festival that has me mesmerised for 10 days. One that makes me forget all the crippling and cribbing of the routine mundane life. That makes me attempt to overcome my shortcomings, imbuing me with a sense of calmness and a zeal.
One’s devotion to a deity is about beliefs. And I believe I am blessed with a divine presence during Ganeshotsav.
No wonder then that Anant Chaturdashi - a day of immersion of Ganesh idols - dawns with a sense of emptiness, restlessness. But irrespective, Bappa has to be given a smiling farewell. And 2017 was different. News18 has captured the whole festive mood really well — just a good click for reference. Do visit that link.
This has to be the best click and a great comment on what Ganesh Visarjan should, and does, represent.
And of course, I had to bide farewell to my Bappa. Somewhere at the corner of my eye, I did have a tear shining.
Ganpati Bappa Morya. Pudhchya Varshi Lavkar Ya.
