Ganesh Chaturthi is a famous Hindu festival celebrated annually to mark the arrival of Lord Ganesha to earth. It falls on the lunar month of Bhadrapada, which is usually around August or September. Lord Ganesha is considered as the God of good fortune, new beginnings and prosperity. People often pray to him to remove obstacles and negativity in their life and bring wisdom and knowledge. The festival is celebrated all over India, including Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Chattisgarh etc. It is also celebrated by the Hindu diaspora in other parts of the world, such as in Singapore, Malaysia, Canada, Europe, etc.
Celebrations begin early in the morning as people clean their homes, visit their relatives, and sing hymns in praise of the Lord. Pujas are performed in front of Lord Ganesha idols that have been sculpted and colourfully painted, especially for that day. Various rituals are also conducted in temples and sweets are distributed to the general public. The celebrations finally come to an end when the idols are immersed in nearby water bodies.
