In Lalbaghcha Raja(Emperor of Lalbaugh)'s Darbar



Media friends today arranged a quick darshan of the majestic Lalbaughcha Raja, the most prestigious Ganesha idol of Mumbai. The darshan otherwise would have been impossible considering the waiting period of up to 22 hours as 1 million people visit it daily through three entrances.

Established in 1934, this Ganesha is believed to be the most vibrant one fulfilling one's wishes always. People from all over make it a point to offer prayers somehow within the 10 days of the Ganapati festival.

Staring up at the huge idol with hands raised in absolute assurance I understood why devotees get so crazy to have a darshan. I saw devotees rushing,pushing and elbowing their way closer and press their foreheads on the golden feet.

A friend told me that local shopkeepers and business houses complain of no sale during this ten days. On our way out I actually saw one hardware store resorting to serving hot snacks!

Ganapati Bappa Morya!
