Mumbai is considered to be the centre of Vinayaka Chavithi 2021 celebrations, and thousands of idols of the gods are made and sold. Small images are used in the home, but life size ones are often set up on temporary pandals on the street. These images are worshipped for a minimum of three days, at the end of which they are carried in a pedestal to the nearest waterbody  for immersion. In some parts of India, Ganesha is known to be the God of harvest, and after the immersion ceremony is over, sand or clay from the riverbed is taken back and scattered around the farm, bars and storerooms.
