Lalbaug Ka Raja

This comes out from my old collection. The idol is of Lord Ganesh who is followed by a lot of Indian Population.During the 10 day festival, the God is offered prayers,donations and prasadam ( sacred food ). After the 10th day, the clay idol is immeresed into the sea. The immerssion procession lasts for about 18 hours, where the lord is pulled by a hand wagon and the journey starts from city centre and ends at the sea side where it gets immersed. The procession has huge orchestras ( locally known as Nashik and Pune Dhol ) and people dance,sing praises of their favourite lord. This festival is celebrated every August-Sept period.
