The lovely Urmila Matondkar has a very unique  experience every Ganesh Chaturthi.

Sharing it  with this writer the Rangeela actress says,  “We don’t get Ganapati at home in Mumbai. We get it in my native place in Konkan.Regrettably this  year we couldn’t make  it due  to  work commitments.”

Urmila Matondkar sorely missed  being where her Ganesha  is. “Believe me,  it is  most beautiful and  pious time of the year. Untouched by modern interpretation of Ganapati, in Konkan the earth looks washed clean and ready for Bappa’s  arrival with greenery and  flowing rivers all around. Nature ready for the arrival of the Almighty.”

Urmila Matondkar also misses the reduced  noise level in Konkan during Ganesh Chaturthi. “Bhajans are not on loud and  screaming recorders but sung from the   heart with live music. And of course we get the   best  Modak (prasad) in the  world  over there, as the coconut used in it is fresh from the backyard trees.”

Urmila Matondkar will make sure doesn’t miss her appointment with Ganpati Bappa  next year  in  Konkan.  “It is  truly a miraculous time. Prayers to the Lord of good times to keep all the evil away from our society….most  of  all,Corona.”
