Among several festivals celebrated by the communities in Mumbai region the most prominent and popular one is “Ganesh Festival” which is celebrated socially and collectively. It is indeed Maharashtra’s mother of all festivals. Started off century year ago by India’s veteran freedom fighter Lokamanya Balgangadhar Tilak with a view to solicitating unity and integrity among Indians, Ganeshotsav served as a publicly accepted platform for national integration. This festival commences on 4th day of “SHUKLA PAKSHA” (waxing moon) of “Bhadrapada” month according to Hindu year and ends on “Anant Chaturdashi” (14th day), is celebrated in Mumbai with great enthusiasm, joy and grandeur. Lacs of devotees turn out at “Ganesh Pandals” throughout the festival to receive lord’s darshan.

The Saraswat Community migrated to Mumbai from places like Karnataka, Goa, Coastal Maharashtra, Kerala and permanently settled here as an intellectual class, and whose principal deity (aradhya devata) of worship happens to be “Mahaganapathi” participate in these festivities with a distinct identity of their rich culture.
