Sivakasi celebrated Ganesh Chaturthi amid COVID-19 pandemic
People across the country seem to have adapted themselves to the changing times brought about by the pandemic. Traditional festivities have been tweaked, keeping the fervour intact. From limiting visits to pandals to keeping celebrations confined to one's home, here is how people are celebrating Ganesh Chaturthi this year. Every year, big vinayaka idols were kept at the key junctions of Sivakasi town, and immersed after conducting a long procession across the town. But this year there were no idols, no pandhals. Sivakasians thronged Vinayaka temples and worship and celebrated the festival. The road leading to Agni Vinayakar koyil wears no festive look this year. Arugampul malai price Rs.25/-. Some florist sold it for Rs.40/- per malai.
