Hindus across India are celebrating the 10 day-long festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, in honour of the god of wisdom and prosperity, Lord Ganesha.

Devotees place idols of the elephant-headed god in their homes or on elevated stages in public places and then immerse them in rivers, lakes or the sea. According to popular belief, Lord Ganesha blesses those who worship him on this day by removing obstacles from their lives and granting them new beginnings.
