This is second time in Pune celebrating the Ganesh Chaturthi. On 3rd I visited a lot many places including Dagru Sheth. What I really liked about festival here is the procession. One can find so many colors in this. The rhythm of the drums, the dancing boys, the fire crackers, altogether it is a complete package. Last time I missed the visarjan ceremony on Anant Chaturdashi, but this time I will not.
