Ganpati Pandals, Khetwadi, Mumbai (2016)



Like every year (almost), this year too I went to see the Ganpati Pandals in the Girgaum area of Mumbai. They generally have been coming up with unique themes and Idols for ages now. Most of the Pandals in this lane are over 50 years old. 

So here are a few pictures that I took last night.

This first Ganpati is not from Khetwadi but from Tardeo, we stopped on our way home to check this one out. 



I think this was one of the best one this year. Minimalist, Grand and just Perfect.



And this one was made entirely of Modaks. I have included a zoomed in picture for you to see all the Modaks. 



Oh and this one had a runway theme, see how the show stopper is posing for all of us.



This one made sure that they remind us to drive safe. Also, they had a cute little fort on the side with two dolls taking a selfie, I found that super adorable!




And this one had Jungle Book theme, with Bageera, Mowgli and everyone else at the entrance.




And this was a star as well, a half centimeter Ganpati sitting on top of Pikachu. They sure know how to keep our Gampu updated with the latest trends.







We had a Mowgli themed Pandal and then we had this one which was Jungle themed. They even have real fish in the Pandal. As we went late night and there weren't many people there at the time, we got to feed the fish as well.
