Moodubelle, 16 September 2010: As I was passing through K.M. Marg Udupi yesterday evening, I was delighted to see the Grand Ganesh Visarjan procession approaching from Jodukatte and was passing through Diana Circle. I had my camera with me which came handy in capturing some pictures.


The procession lead by Elephant, followed by sword warriors demonstrating their martial art skills, Tiger dancers performing tiger dance matching the beats of “Chande” who are just behind them, which followed by various performers and Tablos, with Chande drummers and finally the idol of Sri Ganesh (Pattada Ganapathi of Sri Krishna Mutt) in the procession. Huge crowd participated in the procession while crackers were being burst.

After the Udupi Grand Visarjan procession passed through, I drove towards Moodubelle. But fortunately at Rampura, I found the Grand Visarjan procession of Ganesha of Guddeangady, Alevoor. In this visarjan procession a pair of buffalos was in the lead, followed by various performers and dancers with a band. Follwed them were tiger dancers who got excited seeing my camera, provided me with some exclusive poses. The  idol of  decorated Sri Ganesh was at the end of the procession.




At Guddeangady Alevoor, it was the 26th Ganeshotsav which started on 11 September 2010. On the first day, tulu drama “Amar Baider” was played by Sumansa Kodavoor, on second day “Vismaya Jadhu” was performed by Kudroli Ganesh, on the third day veriety programs by children and women followed by “Rasa Sanje” and on fourth day a tulu drama “Surye Kanthiye” was played by Friends Cirlce, Gudde Angadi. Also on fourth day 108 coconut Ganayaga lead by Vedhamurthy Mohan Thanthri, followed by Purnahuthi, distribution of Prasada and “Sarvajanic Annasantharpane”. Throughout these 5 days celebrations a large number of devotees had participated from Alevoor and surrounding villages.
