Emotional farewell after one and a half days to Ganpati in Kashmir; Initiative of Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Ganpati Trust and other revered mandals
PUNE: The immersion of the Ganesh idol marked the end of one and a half day public Ganeshotsav in Kashmir. Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Ganpati Trust and other revered Ganesh mandals in the city had come together and taken an initiative that Ganeshotsav is celebrated in Kashmir.
Considering the fact that the public Ganeshotsav which is celebrated all over the world, is not celebrated in Kashmir, the first public Ganesh Mandal in the country, Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Ganpati Trust and Kasba Ganpati, Tambdi Jogeshwari, Guruji Talim, Tulshibaug, Kesariwada and Akhil Mandai had announced last year that public Ganeshotsav will be celebrated in Kashmir.
Accordingly, the mandals had handed over a Ganesh idol, which was a replica of Kasba Ganpati, to Sandip Kaul and Sishant Chako of Ganpatyar Trust. On Ganesh Chaturthi, for the first time, an idol of Lord Ganesh was publicly consecrated. The Ganpatyar Trust informed that after one and a half days, the idol was immersed in Jhelum river and they thanked the Ganesh mandals in Pune.
“For the first time, a one and a half day Ganeshotsav was celebrated in Kashmir. The idol of Lord Ganesh was immersed in an emotional atmosphere. I pray to the Bappa that happiness, prosperity and peace should prevail in Kashmir due to Ganeshotsav,” said Punit Balan, the Trustee and festive head of Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Ganpati Trust.
