This week, Hindus around the world celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi, honoring the religion’s most memorable god. Indians living in America too, began the festivities on a high note.

To commemorate the 10-day festival, residents of Oak Tree Road in Edison, New Jersey have also set up a mandal with a 14-foot tall Lord Ganesha statue. The mandal organisers have also put up a 1,000-pound modak on display.
