Ganesh celebrations in India (Photos)
New Delhi is mired in concerns over the city's preparation for the Commonwealth Games. Kashmir roils under gunfire and protests. But in Western India, worries were put aside as people flooded the streets for a 10-day celebration. The riotous festival Ganesh Chaturthi ended in the early morning today. It marks the birthday of the Hindu elephant god Ganesh.
(In a completely unrelated, but fitting coincidence, today also marks Elephant Appreciation Day. Neatorama compiled a list of why we should love the Pachyderm.)
