Ganesha Utsav begins across the country, Prime Minister Modi greets people
Prime Minister Narendra Modi greeted the people on Ganesh Chaturthi by saying, "Greetings on the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi."

Throughout the country, the festival is being celebrated with great fervour and devotion. In Maharashtra and Karnataka, ten-day Ganesha Utsava has also begun.

In the temple on Nahargarh hillock of Jaipur, there is a Ganesha temple in which the idol of child form of the deity without a trunk is worshipped. This year the temple is drawing a lot of crowds and devotees since in the area a lot of tourist attractions have been added by the state government recently.

The temple has 365 steps and has two mice statues. From the temple one can have a bird's eye view of Jaipur city. Devotees whisper their wishes in the ears of the mice to be granted by Lord Ganesha.

The common Ganesha Mantra "Om Gan Ganapataye Namo Namaha, Shree Siddhi Vinayak Namo Namaha, Ashta Vinayak Namo Namaha, Ganapati Bappa Moraya," gets recited on this day by the devotees.

Also, this mantra is recited to begin a new venture also so that impediments are removed and the venture may be crowned with success.
