A few days to...

my favorite festival in India - Ganesh Chaturthi  

Preparations begin months in advance, sometimes a whole year goes in designing the idol for the upcoming year. But rest can be assured of creativity hitting greater heights every single year. 

This time on I have my friend Mangesh Bhadye on board, sharing his pictures as he captures the festivals in its true element. See more of Mangesh's work on his blog.  

In a few days it will be time for the festivities, till then check out these pictures which will give you an insight into what goes into the preparations.
