Ganesh Chaturthi


Bangalore streets lined with colorful Ganesh statues for the festival.

My neighborhood had several community Ganesh statues decorated with flowers and lights.

Some friends and I headed down to the lake Sunday evening to watch the immersions. Because we were dropped off on the far side of the lake, we joined a colorful and musical procession with families and children around the lake to where the festival was being held.




This is part of Ulsoor Lake that was designated as the immersion area for the Ganesh statues. It was organized chaos; very festive and beautiful.
