Getting geared up for Ganesha Chaturthi

Tomorrow is Ganesh Chaturthi. The roads were lined by buyers and sellers. This rick looked like it was about to take off and fly carrying the balloon sellers and their wares.
 These are all taken by my i-phone from the car so not best quality but give you an idea of the pre-festivities. Flowers galore for decorating Ganesha's temporary pandel and for offers during pooja.
 The street were lined with banana leaves being sold at what Parundar considered exorbitant prices. On sale today and tomorrow. Left overs trashed.
And of course the politicians offering everyone a Happy Ganesha Festival - after votes.......
 Ganesha in all sizes have long left pottery town (see previous blog for pictures of the most glitzy, groovy and glam) and now line the streets. Again in a variety of sizes for those of all means.

Tomorrow the Ganesha pooja party begins!
