Bappa Moriya!


Lalbagcha Raja (The King of Lalbaug) is one of the most famous Sarvajanik Ganapatis from Lalbaug, Mumbai, which is set up during Ganesh Chaturthi. Known as a Navsacha Ganpati (the one who has the ability to fulfill all wishes”), the idol is open to visitors for 10 days; and it is then immersed in water on Anant Chaturdashi. In 2018, Lalbaugcha Raja has been gracing Mumbaikars with his presence for 84 years. I got to meet him only once in my life in person. Who knew I’d find him for keeps in Bangalore, of all places!
