Virtual Darshan of Khairatabad Ganesh 2013

Hyderabad’s Most Popular Ganesha comes in it’s latest avatar in 2013! Chaturmukha-Go-Naga-Ganesha(Four faced Ganesha with Cow & Naga at his service)! Standing at a colossal 59 feet holding a 4200 kg laddoo(an Indian delicacy) the Khairatabad Ganesha stands tall in the midst of Hyderabad Ganesh Utsav drawing lakhs of crowds from near & far! The laddoo for Khairatabad Ganesha was prepared by Suruchi Foods in Tapeswaram in East Godavari district. It took them 12hrs to prepare the laddoo and it weighs 700kg heavier than the laddoo offered to Khairatabad Ganesha in 2012.

Virtual Ganesha – the Grand Ganesha Festivities in 360°

36ty Solutions has once again come up with an innovative way of showcasing Ganesh Chaturthi festival virtually with Virtual Ganesha. The centuries old Ganesh festival has stood as a symbol of unity and solidarity during difficult times, during India’s Freedom struggle and even later. We wish to spread the message of universal brotherhood and convey the stories & customs behind this age old festival to our audience.

With Virtual Ganesha, we plan to capture the splendid festival of Ganesh Chaturthi through breathtaking 360° panoramas. Our choice of using 360° panoramas for telling the story is to give our audience a virtual presence in Hyderabad, to experience the grand festival in near real way. We intend to showcase details of the customs that are a part of the 10 day festival, right from the day of Ganesh Chaturthi to Nimajjan. The entire exercise needs huge efforts, to coordinate with the Utsav committees across a city with nearly 10 million population, shoot the entire story, document the history and a lot more. We are a 3 member team of story teller-photographer-programmer and we are putting all our efforts to pull off this herculean task in a big way! Our efforts include planning, shooting, production and hosting. Our humble request to support our effort and spread a word about the same.
