Ganesh Chathurthi, or Vinayaka Chathurthi as is popularly called, is the birthday of Lord Ganesha. It falls in the month of August or September and is celebrated with a lot of joy and enthusiasm all over India.
The main focus of the festival is the installation of Ganesha idol at homes and public places. The idol is worshipped for ten days with daily prayers and is immersed in the nearby lake or pond on the tenth day. Mouth-watering delicacies like Modaka and Ladoo are distributed as Prasada on all ten days.
As Ganesha worship is the main focus of this celebration, decorating Ganesha idol assumes a lot of significance. A lot of time and energy is spent on making the decor as unique as possible.
