The Ganesha temples in Delhi celebrate the festival with a lot of courage and devotion. Firstly it was started celebrating as a national festival to remove the conflicts between Brahmins and non-Brahmins as well as bring unity among people in the state of Maharashtra. The ritual and custom of the immersion of an idol of Ganesha (Ganesh Visarjan) were established by the Lokmanya Tilak.
A huge Aarti ceremony takes place either at home or in the community to be grateful to the God and Modka Ladoos (said to be the most famous dish of Ganesha) are prepared for the offerings. Devotees are completely involved in the Pooja and the Aarti of Lord Ganesha and they do everything with complete faith.
