The holy festival of Ganesh Chaturthi has started from today (September 10). People across the country are making ‘Ganti Bappa’ seated at their homes. Why would Sachin Tendulkar and former explosive opener Virender Sehwag, who once ridiculed the bowlers on the cricket field, stay behind.
A 45-second video of Sachin is currently going viral on social media in which he is seen garlanding the idols of Lord Ganesha as well as other deities under the supervision of his ‘Aai’.
Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar Ganesh Chaturthi) wrote the caption of the video, ‘On the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, I am offering flowers to Lord Ganesha and other deities under the guidance of ‘Aai’. Ganpati Bappa Morya! Happy Ganesh Chaturthi.
On the other hand, Sehwag (Virender Sehwag) was also seen worshiping the child form of ‘Bappa’. He posted a picture of himself with Bappa on his official Twitter handle in which he is seen sitting in front of Bappa. Sehwag wrote, ‘May Vighnaharta Shri Ganesh make a new beginning of happiness in everyone’s life. Ganpati Bappa Morya.
Fans on social media are praising Sachin and Sehwag fiercely and they are giving their comments.

Ganesh Chaturthi marks the birth of Lord Ganesha, who is worshiped as the embodiment of wisdom, prosperity and good fortune. In India, it is a common practice to chant the name of Lord Ganesha to remove any obstacles in one’s work. That is why he is also called Vighnaharta.
