The festival begins with devotees keeping clay idols of Ganesh at homes to symbolise the visit of the God of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. The son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is also known as the remover of obstacles.

The 10-day-long festival ends on Ananta Chaturdasi, and the day falls on 27 September this year. On the day, devotees immerse the idols of Lord Ganesh in water.

Before the immersion, the idols are taken through streets in colourful processions that also have devotees dancing and singing. It symbolise the seeing-off of his journey towards his abode, taking away with him the misfortunes of all mankind.
