Coronavirus effect on height of Khairatabad Ganesh idol
With the coronavirus effect, the Khairatabad Ganesh Utsava Committee is contemplating to cancel the celebrations for Ganesh festival. The panel has cancelled the ritual supposed to be held on May 18.
The members of the committee want to install a one-feet idol of Lord Ganesha if there is no improvement in the situation that arose because of the lockdown.
In 2019, a 61-feet tall Ganesh idol was installed which was made by sculptor C Rajendran with the help of more than 150 artists and welders. He made the first Khairatabad Ganesh idol in 1978.
