Marked by Prasanthi’s special touch of grace and gaiety, scores of Ganeshas in varied hues and contour, flanked by batches of students and staff members, marched into the Sai Kulwant Hall shortly after 1630 hrs. beginning the proceedings for the evening.
The venue, Sai Kulwant Hall, bore a festive look bustling with great devotional fervour and enthusiasm anticipating the fleet of Ganeshas.Marching in, exhibiting festive hustle and bustle, Ganeshas, numbering 21, in fanciful shapes and decor, were arrayed in a disciplined order covering the entire stretch of the darshan pathway.This is the occasion when Prasanthi showcases Ganeshas in varied theme, displaying colourful innovative ideas with the enthusiastic devoted bunch of students putting their best to impress on Baba in the years past.It was touching to see the same fervour in the absence of the physical form of Baba.
Once the ‘Ganeshas’ were settled in their respective slots, higher secondary students lit up the evening with a vibrant musical dance offering, dancing to the tune of a popular song, ‘Sri Ganesha Deva Sri Ganesha Deva…’
After Mangala Arathi offering to the Ganeshas each of the groups went round the Mahasamadhi.. Subsequently each of the Ganeshas was brought to the Mahasamadhi before retreating for immersion.
