The Utsav is celebrated by bringing Ganesh idols of different sizes and shapes, but one thing we can say is that they are incredibly beautiful. Nature wise the festival is enjoyed as a family festival as well as by different social groups normally called Ganesh mandals. These mandals decorate the huge Ganesh idols beautifully. A supporting decoration in the form of a scene from historical or religious incidence is presented near the Ganesh idol. Every area is having many such mandal’s which celebrate the festival with lots of devotion and love for the deity. From the many Ganesh idols in a particular region one idol is honored with the title King of that area e.g “Lalbag cha Raja” is a honor given to a Ganesh idol in the Lalbag region.
