If you’re planning to travel to Mumbai this week, you might want to carry a couple of earbuds, blinkers (just so you don’t get distracted ) and plenty of patience (if you’re a Delhiite then you have nothing to worry) to embrace traffic as your new BFF. ’Cuz our cute pot-bellied Bappa has arrived in the ‘mahanagari’.

Ganpati Bappa Morya!

Let the party begin! *Drumroll*

But before we hit the street and move our booty to some Bollywood ishtyle music. Chuk dhoom, dhoom, chuck dhoom, dhoom... *Drumroll*

Let’s calm down. Breathe in for a moment and think about Mumbaikars and what’s it like to be ’em during Ganesh Chaturthi.

Dhichuk, Dhichuk Muzic!

Who want’s to go clubbing when you could party in your living room-cum-bedroom to ‘Chikni Chameli’ and ‘Baby Doll’ all night long.

Lal Bagh is just like a Black Hole, if you get pulled into it, it’s very difficult to get out... So stay very, very far away.
