Ganesh Chaturthi: What is your opinion about the festivities?

Ganpati bappa morya? 

Ganesh Chaturthi is here and not everyone is excited. Some revel in the festivities, the adorned Ganpati pandals, the hustle and bustle and the modaks! But others don't see the festive spirit and believe that even Ganesh would get frustrated in the traffic and chaos that the occasion brings. Some also worry about the environmental damage that visarjans cause every year. Pollution has always been a sensitive subject when it comes to Ganpati celebrations. Noise pollution and disruption of daily activities has been another issues, especially for the city folk.

So what do you think about Ganesh Chaturthi? Do you think it's the people, and not the festival that's accountable? Do you think eco-friendly Ganpati's can stop this trend? Do you think stricter laws need to be in place to keep the festivities in check? Participate in this poll and add your opinions in the comments to let us know. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!
