Actress Tamannaah said the festival is more about expressing gratitude to the God than asking more from him. She sang an ‘aarti’ to welcome Lord Ganesha. The actress, who has just returned from the India Day Parade in New York, said: “We should respect all faiths and beliefs. I believe God is one and there are just different names. I am very proud and lucky to be an Indian.”

Actor Vivek Oberoi, who welcomed a Ganesha idol at his home on Thursday, spoke about bringing an eco-friendly version. “From the last 11 years, we are bringing eco-friendly Ganesha and I feel it makes lot of difference. When we started that time, people used to say it doesn’t look good, but I feel now people are used to that and people have started liking it. It looks really beautiful and is very beneficial for environment as well.”
