Ganesh Chaturthi marks one of the most auspicious festivals for Hindus, and marks the onset of the festive season for people across the country. It's a ten-day festival, which this year begins September 10, 2021. With people across Maharashtra welcoming their favourite Ganpati Bappa home, India's first Marathi Music Channel 9X Jhakaas brought an exciting contest for its viewers, fans and followers.
9X Jhakaas invited its viewers to share a photo of the idol of Ganpati Bappa from their home, after which the channel would share the best pictures with the world.
Under the Jhakaas Bappa Contest, people from all over Maharashtra had to share the pictures of Ganpati Bappa idols in their homes, along with their name and city on the WhatsApp number - 9930939327. The best Ganpati Bappa pictures would be shared on 9X Jhakaas TV Channel and on its social media platforms i.e. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
9X Jhakaas has since received a huge number of entries. Ganpati Bappa idols have been beautifully decorated with flowers, lights and ornaments.
The most striking Ganpati Bappa idol was a robotic representation of the deity - classic amalgamation of technology and faith.
Other entries were equally interesting.
