Ganesha Pooja, albeit a little late :)

Pooja with all offerings

Pooja with all offerings

During the Ganesha Chathurthi this year, we were travelling and hence were not able to celebrate at home. We have a tradition of keeping our Ganesha for a whole year through and immerse the following year after bringing a a new Ganesha home. To please the Ganesha, we prepare a lot of delicacies 🙂

So what we did was celebrate the festival at a more convenient time, bring the New Ganesha home and made The Elephant Face God happy with all the offerings 🙂
