Yesterday marked the first day of Ganpati, a twelve day festival very popular in Mumbai. Our neighborhood began preparations weeks in advance so it was fun to see the end result. Unfortunately, we didn't bring our camera to the festivities so I would encourage you to look here.
Today should be interesting as well. Families gather together and bring their idols to the beach where they throw them in the water. The idols range in size from twelve inches to two stories high.
