Manushi Chillar narrates: 'My parents always wanted me to experience different cultures and celebrate them.'

'I'm from Haryana, but Mumbai is my home too. This is the first year that I'm keeping Ganpati at home and I couldn't be happier!!'

'Celebrating festivals like this is very important because it brings people and cultures closer, but if we can celebrate it in the most eco-friendly way, we will also contribute towards nature conservation.'

'My idol has seeds embedded in it so I'm going to do the Visarjan at home in a clay tree pot. I'm looking forward to nurture the seeds well so that life sprouts from it.'
