On the day of the festival Ganesha Chaturthi, it is placed on raised platforms in houses or in elaborately decorated outdoor tents (pandals) for people to view and pay their homage. A life-like clay model of Shree Lord Ganesha start making 2 to 3 months prior to the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The size of this idol vary from 3/4th of an inch to over 30 feet. The priest, usually clad in red silk dhotee & shawl, then invokes life into the idol amidst the chanting of Ganesha mantras. This ritual is the pranapratishhtha. After this the shhodashopachara (16 ways of paying tribute) follows. Coconut, jaggery, 21 modakas , 21 durva blades & flowers are offered. The idol is anointed with red unguent (rakta chandan). Throughout the whole ceremony, Vedic hymns from the Rig Veda & Ganapati Shirsha Upanishad, & Ganesha stotra from the Narada Purana are loudly chanted.

For 10 days, from Bhadrapad Shudh Chaturthi to Ananta Chaturdashi, Ganesha is worshipped all parts of India but it is famous in Maharastra state (in India) and Kankinara (in West Bengal). On the 11th day, the idol is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with singing, dancing, to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of all man.

The writer of varunwithu.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: Most answers may look you dead in the face and you still will not see them I will be back.
