Ganesh Chaturthi 2020

Ganesh Chaturthi 2020

It’s not just an event, it’s a spiritual festival when modaks come laden with jaggery, when the ladoos just don’t seem to stop at a few, when you get the lingering smells of incense sticks and burning embers that make every home feel holy. Where people gather together in their homes to give prayers of hope amidst the multitude of challenges.

From chanting devotional folklore songs that spread hope and faith, Ganesh Chaturti is a spiritual festival where communities throng together to put together a pandal and an arti is held with fresh flowers, coconuts and a feast to welcome the deity.

While this year the festivities might look a little gloomy on the streets with the government requesting for low key celebrations to help tackle and monitor prevention of the infection spread. The celebrations are still on while everyone rejoices and makes their home festive to hold prayers.

From diyas that are lit to the maha bhog and the devotional hymns that run through the course bringing a message of hope and faith.

Whether you’re inviting your family,friends or celebrating the festival virtually here are a few suggestions that can help you feel protected yet add to your festivities.

Fogging your homes with disinfectant liquid thoroughly before and after every gathering is very important. Even though guests should be limited in numbers, fogging your space before and after ever gathering is of prime importance.

Ensure that your relatives or a chosen few that you’ve invited over go through a temperature check just for precautionary measures and they take part in religious activities by wearing masks.

Since sanitization has become the norm ensure that sanitizers are placed right at the entrance or you could opt for Atomizers with a disinfectant liquid that will do the job. You could also request your guests to wash their hands and feet.

Maintain social distance with guests and everybody at home and ensure safety hygiene practices.If you’re heading out remember to social distance and always opt for a mask that gives you 6 layers of filter and keep you protected.

To get the best of celebrations you can opt for a portable speaker with a mic that will bring in the festive mode and you can play your bhajans in full delight and make your house get together memorable.


For those who are being more careful and connecting virtually

A Webcamera is a must to connect virtually, so bring your relatives, family, and friends together over a web camera and enjoy your festival with much glee. Connect your laptop to a 2.1 speaker, and let the audio take over, catch up on long conversations and enjoy. Keep a virtual cooking challenge and have the entire family learn a new dish online.

Make your celebrations holy by attending live virtual prayers across different religious places.
