Ganesh Idol makers are prepping up for Ganesh Chaturthi, however, they continue to incur losses.

Tamil Nadu is among the worst states hit by coronavirus pandemic, with 1,99,749 confirmed cases.

Situation has affected businesses in the southern state.

Each year, Ganeshotsav is celebrated in a lavish manner.

Lakhs of devotees gather to worship and seek blessings from Lord Ganesha.

It will fall in August.
