Ganesh Utsav the festival to get blessing from Ganesha.
Ganesh Utsav is not traditional festival of India. Ganesh Utsav was started by
Lokmanya Tilak Ji as British government had banned gathering of 3 or more
people at one place. Tilak Ji started Ganesh Utsav to hold meeting with people
involved in Freedom movement of India.
Over period of time Ganesh Utsav has
totally changed the meaning. There are many people from whom Ganesh Utsav is
just like 9days party. Now Ganpati is festival to collect money from people and
enjoy that money in the name of lord Ganesh. In the night you'll get many
people playing cards and drinking whisky in Ganpati Pandals of Mumbai. Political
parties are showing their power with Ganesh Utsav.
In city like mumbai where traffic on road is big problem, it’s get worse in
these 9-10 days. I am very sorry for the people who celebrate Ganesh Utsav with
faith and trust but that class in getting sink. We all need blessing of Lord
Ganesha but that doesn't mean we should get drunk and fight on road to
celebrate Ganpati. Two group of people are fighting to decide their Territory
to collect donation so it shows everyone want to enjoy from the money collected
in name of Ganpati. Ganesh Utsav now became festival for noise pollution than
worship of God.
