Ganesh Utsav 2020

August 22 - September 1


Ganapati Bappa Celebrations are approaching fast and our team is ready for his grand welcome. We have several initiatives planned to welcome Bappa and celebrate these divine 10 days as a community. All of these events are being planned with utmost care. Safety of all our community members will be our top priority during these unprecedented times!

UMMs celebration is going to look a little different this year, however we guarantee you it will be equally fun!

As we are getting closer to the dates we thought of summarizing all the planned activities! This may be a long read but a very useful one.

Gharacha Bappa – Live Stream

The biggest part of Ganapati festival is the community feeling when we all come together at each of our houses. This year UMM would like to bring a platform for you all to choose a day to share your home Aarti and Ganapati darshan with our community. Please choose a day and time slot using the given link, to share your Gharacha Bappa with the community. Once you sign up UMM will provide you with all the details and any other equipment/technical help you may need.

The compiled video will be shared with the entire community on our social media during Ganapati. We need your participation in this community Atharvashirsha Pathan. Once you register our initiative coordinator will communicate the detailed instructions on how to record at home and other details.


Samooh Gaan

To seek the blessings of the lord to start anything new, we would like to kick start our event with this “Naandi”. This will be a chorus singing activity by our participants. Recording of this will be virtual. Once you register our initiative coordinator will communicate the detailed instructions on how to record at home and other details.

Ganesh Utsav 2020 Performances

And how can we call the event complete without our annual performances from our multi-talented community members. First of all thank you to you all for the registrations we have received. We are sure the participants have started practicing already and are getting ready to spread the magic on stage. We are giving our participants an option to record on UMM stage. If you would like to use this platform for recording your videos, please get in touch with us. All these performances and some fun games will be broadcasted live on the day of the event.

UMM is bringing our annual event showcasing our culture and celebrating Ganesh Utsav. Grab your tea and snacks and join us to enjoy talented dance performances, singing and play act from our very own talented community members!

To conclude this communication, we would like to invite you all to participate in aforementioned events. No event is successful without the participation from their patrons. The joy and enthusiasm Ganapati Bappa brings is intact and no pandemic can affect that. Let’s make this unique way of celebrating Bappa a memorable one. We look forward to seeing you virtually!

Take care and stay safe.

Best Regards,
UMM Committee
