Just as the creation of Ganesha has different stories, there are numerous stories revolving around the initiation and the way in which the festival is celebrated. There are different versions over how the festival began getting celebrated and few believe that it was initiated during the Maratha warrior king Chatrapati Shivaji and is celebrated from then.

 


Later there were not many celebrations, until the popular freedom fighter Lokmanya Tilak reintroduced the festival we celebrate today. The birth festival of Lord Ganesha, Ganesh Chathurthi, is observed during Bhadra month between mid August / September and this year the celebration will happen between August 25 and September 5. Prior to the festival, clay models of Lord Ganesha are made and painted, and decorated and worshipped for 10 days.

 The beginning of Ganesh Chathurthi!

The procession begins from 11th day and people dance and sing prayers worshiping their deity's idol, and then the idol will be taken to water bodies and immersed. The immersion indirectly means the merging of Parvati and Shiva into Ganesha.
