Bollywood celebs from Amitabh Bachchan to Priyanka Chopra thronged the renownedpandal of Lalbaugcha Raja – the enormousGanpati created for worship every year for just ten days to seek blessings from the Lord known to bless the path and remove it of all obstacles. This year Lalbaugcha Raja had a special visitor in the form of the renowned Celebrity Columnist, Interiors Architect and Actor, Nisha JamVwal, who had come for special Ganpati Darshan on the 7th day of Ganesh Chaturthi and was enthralled at the enormity and magnitude of this spectacular vision of thousands of Mumbaikars thronging the venue in devout fervour.
It was the first magical experience for Nisha JamVwal at LalbaugCha Raja, as she touched the feet of this grand deity while the atmosphere was infused with resonant chants, vedic hymns and prayers on this seventh day, as a precursor to the world famous last day procession before the idol immersion on Anant Chaturdashi – the last and biggest day of Ganesh Visarjan. The shraddha and manyata for LalbaugCha Raja is significant as the devotees feel that without visiting the Lalbaugcha Raja and offering their prayers their worship is incomplete.
Said Nisha at the venue “LalbaugCha Raja is a metaphor of the spirit of Mumbaikars and their faith in the Divine Elephant God that removes all obstacles and makes no differentiation in caste creed or religion. Omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God. A tolerant secular outlook is the way of the future & Mumbai must lead the way not engage in petty squabbles- let’s respect human beings and disrespect poor choices of disrespecting women & lack of opportunity for the less privileged. Not how someone wishes to worship- that should be a non-issue in a progressive state that we aspire to be! Ganpati Bappa Morya!!!”
