SHUBH GANESH CHATURTHI !!!

Firstly, wishing everyone a Happy Ganesh Chaturthi! As you might know, each year the arrival of Lord Ganesh (Ganapati Bappa) along with Goddess Parvati (Lord Ganesha’s mother) from the Kailash mountains is celebrated across India with pomp and splendour. As every year, this year too we have celebrated this joyous festival. My family and our family friends have made a beautiful decoration for Lord Ganesh!

Each year we would select a theme and make the decorations accordingly. This year our theme was of our country India’s 75th Independence Day. Our main idea was to make a replica of the India Gate. My Father, Vishal Kaka (our family friend; kaka translates to uncle) and Arjun Dada (Vishal uncle’s son; dada translates to older brother) made the structure using foam boards, Fevicol and nails wherever required. Once the structure was completed, I did the job of painting it and making the brick feel on the India Gate as well as painting the Ashoka pillar.

Then we set set the whole structure on a rectangular cardboard piece covered with plastic grass and did the lighting around it. We stuck a poster of the 75th Independence Day on wall as background. Finally we placed Lord Ganesha’s murty (idol) in the center of the arc. Our decoration was now complete!!!
