The preparations for the Ganeshotsav have already begun. Citizens are very enthusiastic to shop and decorate their Ganapati for the festival. Weekends before festivals are always a tight schedule as most of the citizens are preparing to welcome Ganpati.
On Sunday, the marketplaces were heavily crowded, right from the bus stand. Just like always, Pune Mahanagar Parivahan Mahamandal Limited (PMPML) buses were crowded with people carrying heavy bags with all the necessary decorations for the festival.
At this time, the market area is full of flowers, fruits, decorative items, jewellery, apparel, and Ganesha-Gauri idols. People are eagerly waiting to welcome their idol and most of them said, “This year is special to us as we are celebrating Ganesha Chaturthi after two whole years.” They also said that this festival brings vibrance to life.
The marketplace was exhilarating! The colourful idols, flowers and fruits, bangles, and decorative items mesmerised everyone’s eyes. Not only the buyers but also sellers were happy as they were making good business.

The most important part of this journey is traffic. All the roads connecting the market and residential areas were heavily packed with vehicles. Every corner of the market is proof of citizens’ enthusiasm and joy.
