The popular Khairatabad Ganesha, Hyderabad, will have a unique look for Ganesh Chaturthi 2011. Referred to as Garuda Vahana Vishnurupa Ganapathi, the mammoth Ganesha idol is getting final touches for Vinayaka Chavithi. The height of the idol will be 53-feet, the tallest Ganesh statue in Hyderabad & Secunderabad twin cities. As the idol is made with a theme of Vishwashanti (universal peace & brotherhood), it is placed on the globe rather than the traditional vahanam, the mouse.
Khairatabad Ganesh Utsava Samithi is also set to promote Desha Bhakti (patriotism) along with the Daiva Bhakti (devotion to God). As the country is fighting against corruption, we need to take a part of it, says organizers of Khairatabad Ganesha idol.
