Ganesh Chaturthi festivities returned to Mumbai in all its glory. Devotees marked Ganapati festival with pomp and grandeur after two years of celebrations being marred by restrictions owing to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, on 9 September, the 10-day commemoration has finally come to an end as devotees are gearing up to bid adieu to Ganpati Bappa. And looks like Mumbai Police has a surprise. The police force, which has a prominent social media presence, shared a heart-warming video as a tribute to the city and its residents.

The video rightly captures how the metropolis sprung back to near normalcy during the Ganeshotsav celebrations after facing a lull of two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The extensive preparations by the Mumbai police force to ensure public order during Ganeshotsav was showcased in the clip. It also has a soulful rendition of the popular Marathi aarti Sukhkarta Dukhharta in the voice of singer Rekha Bhardwaj playing in the background.
