On the tenth day after Ganesh Chaturthi, Ganesh idols from all over the city, right from the tiny ones used for pujas at home, to the gigantic community ones are immersed in the Hussain Sagar Lake. Early this morning, we went to the Tank Bund road over the lake, to watch the immersions. They had just started, but it was already quite crowded and VERY colorful!

Multiple cranes are stationed along the lake, to lift the huge idols off the road and lower them into the water. A few men get on to the crane along with the idol to nudge it into the water.
