Braving rains and dancing with gay abandon amid drum beats and sprinkling 'gulal' on each other, the devotees were on their way to the lake for the annual festival. In a departure from the past, the immersion began with the biggest idol in the city. For the first time, Khairatabad Ganesh was brought to the lake for immersion as thousands bid adieu to the 58-feet idol.
