In the middle of communal stand-offs raging in the country, a distinct equation emerges in the heart of South Bombay. Breaking the mould of ingrained animosity, the local Hindu and Muslim brethren come together for the colossal Ganpati celebrations. The age-old tradition associated with the tall fame of Lalbaugcha Raja transpires as a pioneering act of brotherhood in the face of sectarian divide. 
Lalbaugcha Raja is revered as the largest Ganesh pandal in Mumbai. He boasts of India’s longest immersion procession which lasts for nearly 21 hours. The procession weaves its route through key locations dominated by the Muslim populace – Byculla Railway Station, Clare Road, Nagpada, Dunkan Road and Do Taki, concluding at Girgaon Chowpati.
