Greetings to all on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. It is one of the major festivals in Goa and this year the celebrations fall on September 18 through 20.
The heavily forested taluka of Sattari in Goa‘s northeast holds some of the most remarkable surprises. This ancient image of Ganesha, embraced by the roots of a tree, lies outdoors by a secluded, seasonal creek in the village of Ambelim. It remains submerged under water during the monsoon months. Nobody quite knows its history.
