Ganesh Chaturthi or Vinayaka Chaturthi is one of the biggest Hindu festivals celebrated in the country. Celebrated with much fanfare across the country, it falls in the Shukla Paksha of the Bhadrapada month - in August or September. This year, Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated on August 22. On this day, devotees celebrate the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the Elephant-headed God, who is the symbol of good fortune, wisdom and intelligence.
The 10-day long festival begins with Ganapathi sathapana at home and pandals. Devotees observe fast and worship Bappa for the well-being. On the 10th day of Vinayaka Chaturthi, the idol is immersed.
