Ganesh Utsav in the times of COVID-19: A special ground report from Mumbai

Many Mumbaikars on Sunday bid adieu to Lord Ganesh by immersing idols in artificial ponds in absence of access to the sea in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many households follow the tradition of immersing the idols one-and-a-half-day after Ganesh Chaturthi, which marks the beginning of the annual 10-day festival. With fanfare missing due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was a quiet send-off to Lord Ganesh.
