Every year Clay statues of Lord Ganesha are immersed into the water bodies or in sea.

Gradually the clay dissolves into water. Ganesh's image disappears. This ritual is designed by our ancestors to draw attention to the 'ephemeral nature of life and worldly things'.Showing that Nothing in this mortal world lasts forever.

It celebrates the fact of life of Creation(Idol construction),Perpituation(21 days celebrations!) and finally Visarjan or immersion(Distruction) in water bodies!with Fun and fair!,as celebration pointing to the fact and Showing that death is imperative/essential for Creation of New!that's why people say-Ganapati babba mriya,Agle vrs too jaldee Aa!("गणपति बब्बा मोरिया अगले वरस तू जल्दी आ !").

As such asking us to live and celebrate Life,even in the Death!
