Ganesh Utsav & COVID crisis: Bappa will give you ‘Online Darshan’ this year
The Ganesh Utsav is one of the biggest attractions in India, especially in Maharashtra. The festival is full of colours, joy, zest and fun. Every year Bappa is welcomed in the most vibrant way. Unfortunately, 2020 is not the same, thanks to COVID 19. It has brought our lives on a halt. Things are not just unpredictable, but they are scary too. But as they say, ‘Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining’. Time can be tough but it will change for sure. Lord Ganesha is also known as Vighnaharta. To simply put, Lord Ganesha makes sure that- All is Well in the end. Ganesh Visrajan is not just a ritual, it is an emotion. Devotees dance their heart out and request Bappa to come again next year. Well, this year Visrajans will not take place the way they were used due to pandemic. But people are trying their best to keep the spirit alive. Notably, Ganesh Utsav this year will be celebrated from August 22 – September 1.
