Ganpati Visarjan

With rhythms of ‘Bhajan’, dance and prasad distribution, devotees of lord Ganesha bid adieu to the God. On the last day of ‘Ganeshmahotsav’ denizens prepared for Ganpati Visarjan and considered the ‘Shubh’ Muhurat for the idol immersion. Beside administration also took necessary measures to control jam and road blocks during the immersion ritual.


Ganeshmahotsav ended being ‘Green Ganeshmahotsav’ in Agra as locals raised voice against any kind of pollution including water and noise. Wakefulness among people reduced the water pollution this year as many groups used eco Ganpati, while others immersed their idols in the pits near Yamuna. However the excitement of festival doubled as atmosphere brimmed with ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya’.


The enthusiasm of Agraites was pretty high, when they were taken the jhanki along with the God idol. The surroundings were echoed with Ganesh ‘jaikaras’. A huge crowed of people walk together in extreme joy and while dancing in front of the jhankis. People took selfies with lord and seek for the blessings.


On the ninth and tenth day of the festival the ‘Ganesh Visarjan’ held in Agra. Although people started visarjan from the third day of the festival but some of them like to keep ‘Vighna Harta’ in homes as much as they can.


On the tenth day, the enthusiasm gears up more, as people carried the lord with complete ‘Shringar’ and musical beats. People played with Gulaal and flower petals and dressed in traditional attires. The festivity fervor increased as devotees danced to the dhol beats and popular sound tracks from the recent movies. Locals also stepped out of their houses to bid adieu to lord Ganesha on Anant Chaturdashi.


For those who like to spend most of their time on internet, an online app was also prepared by the environment lovers, name Eco-Bappa. The app shared various ways to enjoy the festival using green ways. The same effort was shown online. People used various social networking sites to inform people, not to immerge idol in water, not to play loud music etc.

Many locals and foreigners also witnessed the India culture and danced with the dhol beats. Various ghats in Agra, including Hathi Ghat, Balkeshwar Ghat, Dussehra Ghat etc were packed with devotees and Ganpati Bappa Morya reverberations.


Thank you for reading, hope you all enjoyed the festivity to the core!
