The Ganesh idol im­mer­sions in Kopar Khairane mostly take place at the vis­ar­jan pond in the node.

To enure that there are no traf­fic snarls due to reg­u­lar traf­fic and that of the ve­hi­cles car­ry­ing the idols, the traf­fic po­lice have is­sued a no­ti­fi­ca­tion with re­spect to traf­fic curbs on the 5th, 6th, 7th and 11th day im­mer­sion. Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (traf­fic) Arvind Salve, “We have de­clared the area around the vis­ar­jan pond as ‘no park­ing’ and ‘no en­try’ zone for ve­hi­cles in the Ganeshot­sav rally and also the reg­u­lar traf­fic.”

He added, “More traf­fic reg­u­la­tions have been put in place for the node.”

Salve said, “The curbs will con­tinue on Septem­ber 10 from 2pm to 10pm, on Septem­ber 11 from 2pm to 10pm and on Septem­ber 15 from 12 noon to 6 am on Septem­ber 16 when the im­mer­sions are ex­pected to end.” The fam­ily of Sam­baji Jait­pal cel­e­brates 160-year-old Gauri Puja at their Pan­vel home. This is the fourth gen­er­a­tion of the fam­ily to wor­ship the idol made of brass. Jait­pal’s great grand­fa­ther bought the idol when they were at Man­gaon in Raigad district. “We shifted to Pan­vel af­ter my fa­ther got a job in Mum­bai. How­ever, we have con­tin­ued to use the same idol in our cel­e­bra­tions ev­ery year,” he said. Vashi res­i­dent’s Har­ish Gupta house Gan­pati has the Casino theme as its dec­o­ra­tion.
