Chitralekha Group launches mega event as  part of Ganeshotsav celebrations in Mumbai

For lakhs of ardent Ganesh-bhakts in Mumbai, this year’s Ganpati utsav is going to be an affair to remember. The Chitralekha Group, publishers of India's No.1 Gujarati and Marathi weeklies have come up with spectacular Ganpati special issues, two in Chitralekha Marathi & one in Chitralekha Gujarati. The group has organized a multi-dimensional mega event called "Maha Ganeshotsav" to coincide with the Ganpati celebrations. Sponsored by Sahara India Pariwar, the event promises to be the ultimate Ganeshotsav of the year with lots of prize money at stake.

The event begins with a competition involving Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandals in Mumbai. The participants are required to design /decorate their Pandals based on distinctive themes like:

  • National Integration - India is ONE
  • Save the Environment
  • Keep Mumbai clean

Based on their creation, the participating Mandals will compete for the "Best Ganpati Pandal" Award. A select jury, who will visit all pandals, will adjudge the best three pandals. The winners will be felicitated at a grand ceremony after the event.

The "Maha Ganeshotsav" will involve not only the organisers but also women and kids by encouraging them to participate in "Ganesh Stuti", where they can write a few lines in praise of Lord Ganesha at the pandals. The most devoted (read winners) would be blessed with attractive prizes.

According to the Group, the grand finale on Visarjan Day would be something that's well worth watching out for. It is going to be a spectacular last tribute to the departing Lord Ganesha. The Group promises that the grand farewell would be remembered by one and all in Mumbai for the coming years.
