Ganesh Chaturthi 2010 – The Festival Of India

August or September, depending on the cycle of the moon, in 2010 , Ganesh Chaturthi falls on September 11.  It is celebrated for the following 11 days (ending on September 22), with the biggest spectacle taking place on the last day called  Ananta Chaturdasi Day.

This Festival Begins with the installation of huge elaborately crafted statutes of Ganesha in homes and podiums, which have been especially constructed  and beautifully decorated. It’s forbidden to look at the Moon on the first night as the Moon laughed at lord Ganesha when he fell from his vehicle, The Rat.  On Ananta Chaturdasi (the last day), the statues are paraded through the streets, accompanied by much singing and dancing, and then immersed in the ocean or other bodies of water. In Mumbai alone, more than 150,000 statues are immersed each year !

Hindus worship idols, or statues of their gods because it gives them a visible form to pray to. they also recognize that the universe is in constant state of change. Form eventually gives away to formlessness. However, the energy still remains. The immersion of the statues in the ocean, or other bodies of water, and subsequent destruction of them serves as a reminder of this belief.
