Happy Ganesh Chathurthi!

Estimated Reading Time:
It's festival time in India! Today is Ganesh Chathurthi, a day when we bring home our very own idol of Ganesha, pray to him for a week or so and then return him to where he came from, Mother Earths' womb.


It's a pretty big festival all across India but Northern India take an especial liking it, making extravagant idols, throwing parties, auctioning massive laddoos and generally getting into the spirit of  celebrating a beloved god.

I usually turn my attention to Bollywood this time of year, with a keen eye on Shilpa Shetty and Salman Khan, two celebrities who love celebrating the festival to full glory, her donning traditional Indian clothes and dancing in the streets, him decking up his idols pandal like a fairyland.

Here are a few of my favorites over the years:

Stay safe and happy today!
