Last day of Vinayaka Chavithi - Coconut/Dates Laddu,Semiya Payasam

Ganesha is worshiped for 10 days from Bhadrapada Shudha Chaturthi to the Ananta Chaturdashi. On the 11th day,some on 13thday the statue is taken through the streets in a procession accompanied with dancing, singing, and fanfare to be immersed in a river or the sea symbolizing a ritual see-off of the Lord in his journey towards his abode in Kailash while taking away with him the misfortunes of his devotees, this is the ritual known as Ganesha Nimajjanam.people carry the idols to the river to immerse it.
Some people say " Anything that is taken from the earth should go back to the earth". 

So,I immersed in the bucket of water at home..i missed the pics of these till today so couldnt post in time...I prayed for 3days on the last day of prayer i prepared quick coconut date laddu and semiya payasam as neivedyam and did nimajjanam.
