Ward corporator Sarweswar Reddy has been organising the festival in Dondaparthy since 2019. Around 20 artists from Kolkata came all the way to Vizag for sculpting the idol. It took them 40 days to bring out the final output. Sarweshwar Reddy is the lone sponsor and has spent around `20 lakh for hosting the event.
  • Two tonnes of clay, brought from Kolkata, were used to make the Ganesh idol. In 2019, a 70-ft tall idol was designed. The immersion procedure for the idol will be conducted after 21 days on September 20. In Gajuwaka, the organisers decided to go completely eco-friendly and have even opted to use biodegradable products for decoration.

This year, the mandap (stage) to place the idol has been made with wood instead of iron, he added. Craftsmen from Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Odisha, and West Bengal worked on the idol for 45 days.
  • Under the direction of Rajendra, the artist from Khairatabad, Jogarao from Odisha and Ramesh from Tamil Nadu worked on the 89-ft idol. While Rajendra graphed the body of the idol, Jogarao worked on the face. Around 170 people came together to pull off this stunning sight for the devotees, Kumar said.
  • The ‘Kailasa Viswaroopa Ganesha’ is designed with three faces: Shiva and Parvathi on either side and Ganesh in between. “Lord Ganesh takes one eye from his father Shiva and the other from mother Parvathi. We want to send a message to the younger generation to respect their parents and appreciate their constant sacrifices and hard work,” Kumar explained.
  • While Sri Bhaktanjaneya Vari Suruchi Foods in Tapeswaram is sponsoring a 35-kilogram laddu, Kumar has paid for all other expenses, amounting to Rs 20 lakh. “Irrespective of money, a lot of relentless hard work and energy is put into the festivities. People should recognise the same and encourage the artists,” the lone sponsor opined.

To avoid traffic and to facilitate a smooth darshan for the public, a team of six police officers and traffic police will be deployed on the grounds, along with 25-30 security personnel. Various kinds of stalls have also been set up on the grounds. “With the help of the District Fire Station, the immersion of the idol will take place on September 18,” he added.

As people will be celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi after a gap of two years owing to the pandemic, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde announced no restrictions on the height of the idols. Mumbai is known for the various unique and amazing Ganesh idols by pandals which attracts many visitors every year. This year, Mumbai’s Khetwadi residents welcomed Maharashtra’s tallest Ganesh idol with a height of about 38 feet. ‘Khetwadi cha Lambodara’ who is famously known as ‘Mumbaicha Maharaja’ has appeared on the 11th lane of Khetwadi and is the tallest in Maharashtra. The idol has been set up as Parashurama, Lord Vishnu’s incarnation.

  • Due to the injustice done to his clan, Parshuram ****ed 21 generations of Kshatriyas. He recognised Lord Ram as a fellow Vishnu avatar and put down his parashu (axe) as soon as he saw the revered kshatriya after Ram broke the bow at Sita Swayamvar. One of Mumbai’s most magnificent Ganesh statues is the Mumbaicha Maharaja. The mandal was founded in 1959, but it only became well-known in 2000 after creating the 40-foot-tall Ganesh idol that is the tallest in Indian history. The figure is adorned with genuine gold jewellery. This year the idol is 38 feet tall and Murtikar Kunal Patil is credited with mounting the Ganesha idol.
