Pune: Lord Ganesh received a rousing welcome in the city amidst the chants of ‘Ganpati Bappa Moraya!’ and the enthusiastic sound of dhol echoing in the old city area on Thursday.

The five Manache Ganpati were installed traditionally in the morning following the colourful processions which started early in the morning. The sky remained cloudy but pleasant, which only prompted more people to participate in the processions.

The fete included lots of elation and hilarity, along with sundry Ganpati mandals, especially the Manache Ganpati and also Bhau Rangari, the oldest Ganpati in Pune and the lauded Dagdusheth Ganpati. Kasba Ganpati, the first Manacha Ganpati set off at 8.30 in the morning and reached for installation of the idol at 11.30 am. Kasba Ganpati came along with Shivvardhan Pathak and Prabhat band, summing up for the complete gaiety and devotion.

Following was Tambdi Jogeshwari, the second Manacha Ganpati which left at 10.30 am and reached at 12.30 pm and was accompanied by the band Gandharva, Shivamudra Dholpathak and Nagara Adhav Brothers.

Guruji Talim, the third most revered Ganpati came next, which left at 10 am and reached for the idol to be installed at 12.30 pm. With it were Naadbramha Pathak, Guruji Prathishtha Pathak, Shivgarjana and Ashwarajraas band.
