Chaturthi celebrations at their homes this year due to pandemic

GOA: Many families in Goa have kept alive the tradition over generations of gathering for the Chaturthi celebrations at their ancestral homes This year however due to the pandemic, a lot of restrictions have been imposed.The Sardesai Family from Savoi-Verem is one such family. “We used to have Ganesh Chaturthi every year for one and a half days.

This is the first time in 285 years that we will not be celebrating on Ganesh Chaturthi day. This year due to the pandemic we have decided not to have it on August 22 but on the day of Navratri in October. The festivities will start and end on the same day,” informs Sanjeev Sardesai from the family. Talking to us about some of the traditions, he says, “There is a single Ganesha idol for all Suryarao Sardesai families originating from the ancestral house at Savoi-Verem. No family is allowed to carry out Ganesh Chaturthi rituals individually in their homes. This helps us to bond as one big family.”
