Day 651: Ganesh Chathurthi, Panchavaadyam & Elephants!

1 September, 2011

Highlight of the day was a visit to the Lord Ganesh temple at Naduvilal in Thrissur, to celebrate Ganesh Chathurhti. What is special about this temple is that it was established by my great grandfather, several decades ago. It had started off as a very small thing but today, there was a big celebration there - in fact, the biggest Ganesh Chathurthi celebrations in Thrissur, complete with Panchavaadyam (percussion performance) and decorated elephants, happened right here!

We spent some time there - praying, enjoying the panchavaadyam, watching the elephants and generally having some good fun together with the rest of the crowd. It was also quite the cultural experience for the hubby!

A good evening!
