Ganesh Chaturti is a widely celebrated festival in coastal Karnataka. It is quite common to bring home idols of Ganeshji, have a day long/more than a day long pooja, and finally immerse it into the well in the backyard. Huge pandals that house 'samoohik' Ganeshas are quite common too.
And where, or rather, who makes these Ganesha idols? Hands like these!
