There comes a day when the Atithi, the guest, departs to his abode, and that includes the Almighty as well. After 10 days of fanfare, pomp and gaiety, time has come for the departure of people's favorite God. As one flocks to say the final goodbye on the day of Anant Chaturdashi, Girgaum Chowpatty in Mumbai turns into the ocean of humanity as tens and thousands engulf the beach for the immersion of Lord Ganesh. Offering the Aarti one last time, the devotees carry the idol for immersion with the chants of "Pudhcha Varshi Lauker Ya" (Come again early next year), a moment of grief in otherwise joyous day.
An experience worth living, as the magnanimous idols stand tall among the sea of people as they wait for the raft to take them on the final journey. A must on your to-do list if you happen to be in Mumbai around this time. Ganpati Bappa Morya!
