Fiona Reccos: Starry memories
A weeklong series offers you a ringside view of how celebrities welcome the elephant God into their homes
As part of our endeavour to give readers a pulse of the ongoing Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations a hatke se twist, The Guide team presented a weeklong BAPPA AND THE STARS series was launched where we went behind the scenes with celebrities who gave us a sneak peek into how they prep for the festival. From Shilpa Shetty giving us the lowdown on healthy feasting to Makarand Deshpande inviting us to meet his 95-year-old father after buying their family idol from a generations-old murtikaar, and Rithvik Dhanjani creating his own idol, their stories was an eye-opener into the lives of these stars who are always in the limelight.

The Snoot Challenge had dogs everywhere take part in a viral trend where the owner cajoled their dogs to run up to them and place their snout within a shape made by their hands such as a heart or a circle. The accompanying videos became an Internet rage. We invited pet parents in the city to get their pets do the same. The results were hilarious and fun.
