Says Anil Sharma: "We brought this Ganpati on August 23 to our home in Lajpat Nagar - II in Delhi. My mother performs the welcome aarti. Ganpatiji remain for five days in our house. During these five days the whole atmosphere in our house is filled with joy and excitement. 

"In fact due to Ganpatiji our house seems like there is a wedding in the family. But the last day was bit painful at Visarjan. We were all in tears as it happens at Indian wedding when at the time of vidai/doli tears of happiness come automatically from your eyes. I think we all had the same feeling at the time of visarjan."
