At homes, many devotees in Jaipur have prepared Daal, Baati and Churma - typical Rajasthani dishes - as an offering for Lord Ganesha today along with laddoos. The festival is also celebrated in overseas like USA, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Canada and so on across the world.
The festival is celebrated every year on the fourth day of the bright fortnight in the month of Bhadra (Bhadra Shukla Chaturthi) according to the lunar calendar. In Goa the sale of plaster-of Paris Ganesha idols has been banned by the state government and celebrants are encouraged to buy traditional, artisan-made clay idols. Puja is done by saying mantras of Lord Ganesha.
