COVID-19: Lalbaugcha Raja Not To Be Seen This Ganeshotsav?

The most famous Lalbaughcha Raja in South Mumbai will not grace the throne this year due to the hike in coronavirus cases in Mumbai. Since the past 93 years Bappa used to come to the lalbaugh market with grand celebrations but this year the conditions are not the same.

The coronavirus cases in Maharashtra have crossed 1,74,761 mark which is why the  Mumbai’s Lalbaugcha Raja Ganeshotsav Mandal has taken this decision.

Instead of the grand celebrations this year the market will be getting ready for blood and plasma donation camp.

This year the Ganeshotsav will be celebrated as a health festival to fight the pandemic. Therefore an 11-day health camp will be organised in the market area.

Every year the pandal received huge offerings from devotees in the form of gold, silver and money. On an average 80,000 to 1 lakh, people used to visit ‘King of Lalbaugh’ to seek his blessings.

Keeping in mind the current situations Uddhav Thackeray in a meeting said that celebrations cannot be done with usual grandeur. During the Ganeshotsav, many people step out and take part in the celebrations which are not safe at the moment. Instead, he urged people to perform a low key celebration this year.

We will definitely miss the 22 feet tall Ganesh idol of Lalbaugh this year.

Stay home! Stay Safe!
