Ganesh Chaturthi this year was fun, with a lot of homemade bakshanam (all thanks to my mom being here) and family bonding and louvve. 🙂
We normally don’t buy a Pillaiyar idol every year, but do pooja of the same idol – the one that I got from Ahmedabad.
We went to see the diamond-studded Ganesha at Rajajinagar, along with my cousin, and found a very fair-like atmosphere there.

The entire area was brilliantly lit, and there were song and dance programmes going on. Complete with amusement rides, chaat and snacks. 🙂
I loved the decoration at the chilli bajji stall. 😛
We talked a lot, saw a lot, heard some, ate some, and enjoyed a lot. 🙂
We returned home after stopping at at a couple of other Pillaiyar darshan stalls on the way, all set up by the children of that area.
I particularly loved this one:
And then we made preparations for my nephew’s cutesy birthday party the next day, which, again turned out to be loads of fun. 🙂
That’s that for now, people!
How were the festivities for you guys?
