Ganesh Chaturthi, which will begin on August 31 this year, is celebrated with great pomp and zeal in several states across the country, and 2022 marks the return of its celebration after 2 years of COVID-induced restrictions.

Also known as Ganeshotsav, this ten-day auspicious period begins with Chaturthi Tithi and ends with Anantha Chaturdashi. Devotees of Lord Ganesh, the god of wisdom and good fortune, mark his birth during the Shukla Paksha month of Bhadrapada.

People bring idols of Lord Ganesh to their homes, observe fasts, prepare appetizing dishes, pray to the Lord and observe rituals during this festival. With 2022 bringing back the Ganesh Chaturthi festivities and only 2 days left for the occasion, preparations are in full swing across the country.
