While it is celebrated in various parts of India, the Ganpati festival is most prevalent in the state of Maharashtra. This event, which is known as visarjan, features lavish aartis and processions and is often marked by large and elaborate idols.

For visarjan celebrations, Maharashtrian women and children wear colourful nauvari saris and decorate themselves with garlands and traditional accessories like nath and jhumkas. The men and children wear vibrant red or saffron-colored kurtas. The performance is carried out on the basis of the traditional patterns of Puneri folk dance. Five instruments are used during the dance: dhol, tasha, tol, jhanj, and dhvaj.

More than 10 lakh people gather on the streets of Mumbai to witness the visarjan procession.

Significance and rituals of Ganesh Visarjan

It is told in the Hindu scriptures like Vedas and Puranas that all the gods and goddesses are invoked and brought to the human dwellings from heaven on auspicious occasions by reciting mantras. That is why it is very important to immerse these deities. The ideas of visarjan are also found in Ganesh Punarans which speak of going to a river, creating an idol out of clay, and bringing it back to the river. The colloquial idea is Ganpati comes into the homes of his devotees as a guest, you serve him, and then you must let him go.

Before Visarjan flowers, durva (kind of grass), coconut, akshat, turmeric, kumkum, modaks, laddus, batasha, paan, beetle nut, cloves etc are offered to the god, and prayers of offered with a lamp of ghee and burning incense. ‘Pudhchya varshi lavkarya(come back next year)’ is chanted during immersion.
