    chandi_padvo_468Surat: The 'Chandi Padvo' festival was celebrated with fervour and gaiety in Surat with people stocking and savouring the traditional local sweet 'Ghari' on the occasion.

    The festival went on for two days beginning on Saturday, widely in Surat, perhaps the only city in the country where people celebrate it ever since the time of Marathi rule Tatya Tope.

    It is estimated that people of Surat ate about 150 tonnes of 'Ghari', a local sweet made on the occasion, which is full of ghee and dry fruits. It is highly priced and available in many varieties and flavours such as pistachio ,almond-elachi and mawa.

    This festival is celebrated a day after 'Sharad Purnima' and sweet shops in Surat start preparing the delicacy weeks before it, as the demand is very high among Gujaratis settled abroad too.

    Suratis settled in UK, USA and Canada also celebrate this festival by eating Ghari, which is delivered to them through dispatch, said a sweet shop owner here.

    A large number of people visited nearby beaches at Dumas and Ubharat while many went holidaying to Goa during the weekend.
