The popular festival of God of wisdom - Ganapati was celebrated in a grand manner last Sunday on September 20th at the India Center in Shrewsbury, MA. The planning team of this event was working very hard for last 2-to 3 months to make this event amazingly successful.
As always the overall atmosphere and mood during this festive day takes us all back home in India where our traditional ganeshotsav is being celebrated. The program started with a wonderful procession of "Ganapati" being sat in Palakhi ( a special carriage made for ganapati bappa. "गणपती बाप्पा मोरया । मंगल मूर्ती मोरया ।" was a typical chant, we could hear everywhere. The procession was led by enthusiastic and energetic Lezim presentation. The group of girls and ladies who danced along with catchy and super fast rhythm. An informative and interactive Ganapati Pooja was held by our Mrs. Pushpa Joshi. We are really grateful to Warty Kaka and Kaku for hosting the pooja.

It was nice to see several families with small children and grandparents. Activities included Archery, Riffle Shooting, Canoeing, Kayaking and field sports. Playing Antakshari and Tambola around the campfire while the kids had fun making Smores in the campfire added a cerian uniqueness to the trip. There was of course lots of India food and desserts. Many people went on a hiking trail or went around the reservation on bikes. Saturday night was perfect for star gazing. All volunteers did a magnificent job in planning the trip in great detail.
