Ganesh Festival (गणेशोत्सव): revive the vision of Lokmanya Tilak

In 1893, Indian freedom fighter and social reformer Lokmanya Tilak transformed the annual domestic Ganesh festival into a large, well-organized public event. Tilak  popularised Ganesh Chaturthi as a national festival in order  to bring unity among the people and to generate nationalistic fervor  against the British colonial rule.

Time has arrived to revive that spirit again but for different reasons. Let us celebrate the Festival to spread the message of purity in public life. To banish corruption, of all kinds, from our personal life.
