Flowers in her hair, green bangles and a nose ring to match her nine yard sari; exactly how a typical Maharashtrian woman would dress for Ganesh Chaturti. However, as time is passing, people are becoming more urban. They tend to lose their patience and along with that their authentic look.
These days people prefer wearing silk outfits with heavy work and plain silk saris to add to the class. The concept of the old paithani’s or nine yard saris is dying out and is only worn either by the extremely enthusiastic younger people or the older generation. However, the paithani gives a royal look to Maharashtrian women and its traces run back in time to that of The Peshwas. The Ganesh Chaturthi look is garnished with a nathni, green bangles, and silver toe rings as a symbol of marriage. Ganesh Chaturti is the biggest festival for Maharashtrians and specially all of Pune and Mumbai celebrates for 11 days. Women dazzle in pretty clothes while the city sparkles in its expensive lighting.
The faith of Ganesha has the power to bring millions of people to together in one place at one time – for instance Lalbaug (Mumbai). The festivities bring about a lot of commotion that ends up dirtying your clothes. In all these celebrations there is a lot of laundry that gets accumulated owing to the sweaty meetings at mandals and the food stains caused by tantalizing delicacies.
