Ganeshotsav pandals in Mumbai are ready to welcome the elephant-headed God.

As the veil lifts across big and small mandals during Ganeshotsav, pandal-hoppers are expected to throng certain venues, partly owing to their lavish themes or simply their wish-fulfilment quotient.

Take this pandal for instance. The Ganpati idol at the Gaud Saraswat Brahmin Mandal at King's Circle has upon it, hold your breath, a whopping 68 kilos of gold and 435 kilos of silver.
