Goodbye Ganpati Bappa...

Its visarjan time and while its all fun and frolic when we make our way towards the waters, like always this goodbye too tends to end up being bittersweet.

When the beloved Lord Ganesha bids adieu after adorning our homes with his graceful presence, we tend to feel a void.

Our telly stars too share their similar feelings with us on the occasion of Anant Chaturthi, the last day of celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi. The day follows the immersion  of the idols of the beloved Lord, but to be welcomed the next year with equal fervor.

Shubhangi Atre:

Will you miss the festive atmosphere and the presence of Lord Ganesha's moorthi after the visarjan?
Yes definitely. We bring Ganpathi Bappa for three days and its such a beautiful atmosphere at our place and when we come after Visarjan the house becomes so dull and we wish that Ganpathi Bappa should come early at our place next year.

Have you set any goals for yourself that you want to achieve before Ganpati bappa makes his presence felt next year?
I have decided to work harder and try to make myself an established actor in this industry.

Any wish that you had asked Ganpathi Bappa this year?

Ganpathi Bappa had already given me so many things; he has blessed me with a cute beautiful daughter. I just asked Ganpathi Bappa this year to make me successful, so that people will know me as a good actor.

Puja Bose: 

Will you miss the festive atmosphere and the presence of Lord Ganesha's moorthi after the visarjan?
Yes obviously it's the biggest festival in Mumbai and bringing Ganpathi Bappa home is full of excitement and happiness.

Have you set any goals for yourself that you want to achieve before Ganpati bappa makes his presence felt next year?
Yes a successful career.

Any wish that you had asked Ganpathi bappa this year?
It's personal, but yes I had definitely wished for a successful career.


Angad Hasija: 

Will you miss the festive atmosphere and the presence of Lord Ganesha's moorthi after the visarjan?
Yes. Actually I had only heard about this parting sadness, but this year I'm personally experiencing it. We bring Ganeshji amidst a lot of singing and dancing. All the time that he is there, many relatives come over and the atmosphere never has a dull moment. But after the Visarjan the whole house feels empty.

Have you set any goals for yourself that you want to achieve before Ganpati bappa makes his presence felt next year?
To give my best towards my work.

Any wish that you had asked Ganpathi Bappa this year?
Lots of happiness.


Arjun Bijlani:

Will you miss the festive atmosphere and the presence of Lord Ganesha's Moorthi after the Visargan?
Yes, obviously. When Ganpati is there, we are awake at night doing lots of pujas and other activities.  We are kind of charged up at all times. But after the visarjan there's always a little heartache.

Have you set any goals for yourself that you want to achieve before Ganpati bappa makes his presence felt next year?
Yes, I'll be working towards buying a larger house.

Any wish that you had asked Ganpathi Bappa this year?
Yes, to bless me so that I can achieve my goals.
Pallavi Subhash:

Will you miss the festive atmosphere and the presence of Lord Ganesha's Moorthi after the visarjan?
Yes I will. Both Ganeshji and Durgaji's idols are kept at our Naani's place.  During the whole time that they are at our place, the whole atmosphere becomes divine. And after their visarjan we definitely feel that there's something missing in the house.

Any wish that you had asked Ganpathi bappa this year?
Well, I made a wish to Ganpati bappa that all the havoc created by the bomb blasts, recession etc. may be erased. And that everybody's lives be restored to peace.

Have you set any goals for yourself that you want to achieve before Ganpati bappa makes his presence felt again next year?
Yes, my goal is to have a successful career.

Sameer Dharmadhikari:

Will you miss the festive atmosphere and the presence of lord ganesha's moorthi after the visarjan?
It's a very nice feeling when we go for visarjan. But after the gaana-bajaana is over we are all with tears in our eyes. So yes, I guess we all miss the good feeling once the festivities are over.

Any wish that you had asked Ganpathi Bappa this year?
Ganpathi Bappa has given me so many things. I'm lucky because he automatically has granted me many things even before I ask for them. 

Have you set any goals for yourself that you want to achieve before Ganpati bappa makes his presence felt again next year?
No fixed goal. I'm just praying that my show Jhansi ki Rani which is currently on air should be appreciated by people as everyone is putting 100 percent to make the show a success.

Telly Buzz wishes its readers for a great future, and leaves you with the thought, 'Ganpati Bappa Moriya Agle Baras Tu Jaldi Aa'....
