Goa gears up to welcome Lord Ganesh

Ganpati festival

Goans have geared up to celebrate with pomp and grandeur the 10-day Ganesh Chaturthi festival beginning from today with the festive spirit already filling the air.

Hundreds of clay idols of Lord Ganesh will be consecrated after processions that will be taken out throughout the day today.

The festivities mark family unions in many places as this is the time of the year when city-dwellers return to the countryside for the festival.

Alike the Konkan Railway which is running special services from Mumbai owing to the heavy rush, inter-state buses too are chock-a-block as everyone is rushing home to celebrate the festival with their families.
