Ganpati Visarjan/Ganesh Chaturthi

By JANAK SAMTANI

Amongst a lot of things lying on the beach, we found idols immersed on the earlier days lying exposed due to the low tide. Worshipers pitied, expressed shock on seeing the idols stuck on the beach and then went on to immerse the idols they brought with them, which they worshiped during the nine days of the festival. I feel it has all boiled down to ‘this is my idol and has no association whatsoever with your idol’.

By no means am I undermining their devotion. This has been going on for decades and is increasing every year with the politicizing of the festival.
