City’s Famous Ganpati Mandals Differ Over Immersion Procession Timing


City Name, Date – A rift in opinion has emerged among the renowned Ganpati mandals of the city, as the Shreemant Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust announced its intention to start its immersion procession at 4 p.m. on the designated day, challenging a 132-year-old tradition. In contrast, four other prominent mandals, including the Akhil Mandai Mandal, Shrimant Bhausaheb Rangari Mandal, Hutatma Babu Genu Mandal, and Shree Jilbya Maruti Mandal, have firmly decided to uphold the traditional time of 6 p.m.

The division of opinion was publicly disclosed during a press conference hosted by Manik Chavan, the President of the Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust, where he confirmed their decision to commence the immersion procession two hours earlier than the customary time.

Responding to this announcement, the presidents of the four major mandals issued statements, affirming their commitment to the longstanding tradition and expressing their respect for the Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust’s individual decision.

This difference of opinion has sparked discussions and debates within the city’s Ganeshotsav community, with some individuals supporting the Dagdusheth Halwai Ganpati Trust’s initiative as a way to potentially alleviate logistical challenges during the immersion procession. Others argue that the tradition should be preserved, as it holds significant cultural and historical value.

The coming days are expected to witness further deliberation and possibly negotiations among the mandals to find common ground and ensure a harmonious celebration of the upcoming Ganeshotsav.
