Though he is worshipped by the Hindu minded Indians from peaks to Cape and Dwaraka to Dharang Dzong across, it is only the erstwhile Bombay state that monopolized in worshipping him on a scale grand; fervour, inimitable; forms innumerable; and ways incalculable. Go across the state lengthwise or breadth wise, sure you can see everywhere his shrines in every village, niches in big temples, icons in street corners, portraits in every house, and pendants in the neck chains of the ardent devotees. The house may not have proper door, but it invariably adorns the lintel of the entrance with the carving or an image of Ganesh or colourful paper copy artistically pasted. Every hamlet, town or city celebrates the Ganesh Chathurthi, the annual festival in a grandiose manner with enormous expenditure exceeding the budget figure of some states, recently added to the Indian Union.

Ganesh is the family deity, community god and State divinity of highest veneration, and has been adored since time immemorial. And as such the Peshwas of Maharastra, nationalists of this state, particularly the proud sons of the soil have been drawing inspiration and sustenance from this benevolent god, since the dawn of religion.
