Ganesh Chaturthi festival is approaching. All over Goa we can see different places with beautiful idols of Lord Ganesha in Ganapati chitra shala (a place where they make the idols, paint and sell). Ganesh Chaturthi 2021 in Goa might not be celebrated like the pre-COVID era. However, now all are eager to welcome Lord Ganesha at home and celebrate in their own way.
