Happy "Ganesh Chaturthi"/ B-day of lord Ganesha (Pune)


Most of you must already have seen stetue's of lord Ganesha while roaming within Pune city. From today, 5~6 days festival/celebration starts in west side of India i.e. mainly in Maharashtra state.

And don't miss to see amazing decoration at "Dagdusheth Halwai" ganesh temple in city area. Marvelous replica of some temple from South side of India they have built. Entry remains free.

Also check out live shows at various part of the city by evening hours. Only beware of pick pockets. Needless to say we also need to be alert too of pick pockets at such crowded places.

And lastly, do enjoy "Modak" . A sweet which is offered to lord Ganesha. Modak is very similar to Chinese dumplings. Only difference is "Modak" is sweet inside. Mixture of coconut and Jaggery. = Protected content Don't eat Modak with Chopstick. ;-) Pick it up with right hand with care and glup!!!! Yummm!!!!

Have lot of fun!!!!
