Delhiites who are all set to gear up for the Dushera are all equally excited when it comes to Ganesh Chaturthi Puja. The festival that begins on the Hindu month of Bhadrapadha and on the day of Shukla Chaturthi is celebrated with great fanfare even in the capital of the country.
There are major community pandals that are erected and host the God Ganesha idols. Since many people from Maharashtra and even the Southern peninsula have moved to New Delhi, there are plenty of Mandals that host these Ganesh Pujas and all those ten days, there is a lot of fun and enjoyment. The communities of housing societies definitely have their big pujas that should not be missed.
Puja that touch the heart:
Lord Ganesha prevails over all of us, and whether you are celebrating in a community or even at home, just sincere prayers, and worshipping a small idol is enough. But then if you happen to visit New Delhi during this time, then do visit, Sri Vinayak Mandir at Sarojini Nagar and several other temples get decked up for the festivities. Metro Staff Quarters of Radio Colony and community pandals of grand scale as Netaji Subhash Place Ground are also major draws.
