The festival is celebrated in the Hindu calendar month of Bhadrapada, which begins on Shukla Chaturthi (the fourth day of the waxing moon period). This festival is celebrated mid-day and early evening on the Chaturthi of Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada Shukla Paksha Chaturthi. If both the days are Chaturthi, Ganesh Chaturthi (Vinayaka Chaturthi) then fasting should be done on the first day. If Chaturthi lasts the entire duration of the meridian on the second day, if it lasts for a Ghatika (24 minutes) in the meridian period of the previous day, then the previous day should be observed. The date usually falls between 20 August and 15 September. An annual festival honors Ganesha for ten days, beginning with Ganesh Chaturthi, which generally falls in late August or early September. The festival ends on the day of ‘Anant Chaturdashi’ when the images (statues) of Ganesha are immersed in the most convenient body of water.
The festival of Ganesh Chaturthi (Vinayaka Chaturthi) is celebrated in Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, and many other parts of India. In 1893, Lokmanya Tilak transformed this annual Ganesh festival from private family gatherings into a grand public event. He did so in his nationalist efforts against the British in Maharashtra to “find a suitable context for bridging the gap between Brahmins and non-Brahmins and forging a new ground unity among them”. Because of Ganesha’s widespread appeal as a “God to every man”, Tilak chose him as a rallying point for Indian protests against British rule. Tilak was the first to install huge public images of Ganesha in the mandapa, and he established the practice of submerging all public photos on the tenth day. Today, Hindus across India celebrate the Ganpati festival with great enthusiasm, although it is most popular in the state of Maharashtra. The festival is also celebrated on a large scale in Mumbai and the surrounding areas of the Ashtavinayak temples.
Seeing the moon on that day is still forbidden because when Ganesha fell from a mouse in his vehicle, the moon laughed at him. “Glory to Ganesh Maharaj!” With idol immersion in between chanting. The festivities end the following year with a prayer to Ganesha.
