Mumbai is all decked-up to welcome it’s favourite lord Ganesha this Ganesh Chaturthi. From bedazzling pendals to yummy modaks, the stage is set to bring home and pamper Bappa for the next eleven days. Come Thursday and every nook and corner of the city will be echoing the sounds of ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya!.’ Even Baby H couldn’t miss the special preparations, thanks to our society’s pendal, lighting and all. Every morning while leaving for her school she counts days remaining for Ganpati’s arrival and I can’t wait to take her pendal hopping!
