Are you ready to be a part of this lockdown Ganesh Utsav?
Ganesh Utsav is one of the most awaited festivals for the citizens of India. So are you prepared to celebrate this festival beneath the clouds of lockdown? Almost every individual is asking a question of why this is happening and when this will come to an end, but rather thinking of all these come let us reunite and find a way to make things beautiful and memorable. Lockdown has already changed our lifestyles and you all are going through some of the other challenges. So are you ready to take up a challenge of celebrating this Ganesh Utsav with a bang in this Covid19 situation where everything is restricted?
As every year we brought idols of Ganpati Bappa to our home and in Pandals with great prosperity and worship for 10 days. A huge celebration was carried out everywhere but this time the roads, localities, temple areas will be silent and there will be no extra activities partaken. Though this year we can't celebrate massively small attempts will also make the changes.
You can make or bring the small eco-friendly idols of Lord Ganesha, then follow all the rituals with the family members. Evening Aarti can be conducted which can make the prevailing surrounding joyous and blessed.
This would be a great time with the family members, where everyone’s presence can contribute to some sort of entertainment because in this lockdown we cannot go out but we can make things work by having online prayers and preparing tasty and healthy dishes.
After the whole of these 10 days of small celebration, the time comes to see off our Lord Ganesha, though the mood is a bit somber, we can’t have a grand farewell this time.
The festival culminates with the immersion of Lord Ganpati’s idols but as per the outgoing scenario, we can’t go to any reservoirs as we have to maintain social distancing and avoid moving out. By keeping up all the safety measures and following the rules, from every family a member can go to a pond or river area where there is full protection by the government, and avoiding social gatherings at all cost.
All these things can be done if you as an individual are ready to take responsibility. Be careful what you create because healing and harming comes back to you like a boomerang, so be a responsible person first to your family and to others. Stay home, enjoy this festival with your family by all the safety measures and be a part of this awesome juncture and make it live.
