Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated all across the nation. Lord Ganesha is widely worshipped as the god of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune and traditionally invoked at the beginning of any new venture or challenge.
In SVM, on the very first day of Ganesh Chaturthi, the majestic idol of Lord Ganesha was installed and rituals were performed with reverence in a greatly decorated temple of the assembly hall. Various slogans along with the bits of drums were offered in praise of Lord Ganesha. Every evening, Aarti with Diya in decorative and colorful plates was the most awaiting ceremony for the students.
On September 13, the fifth day after the installation, the idol of Lord Ganesha was taken out for immersion. After performing Puja and Aarti, the teachers held the idol with awe in a grand procession to Narmada Ghat of Nilkantheswar Temple, followed by a band of musician of students with entire SVM family. The students spoke out aloud the ‘Jay Naad’ and ‘Ganpati Bapa Moriya’, to welcome the lord Ganesha for the next year thinking all of His holy qualities.
Where did these five days of celebration go by, nobody knew it…that was the holy charisma of the festival.
