The India-Pakistan Border cha Raja is all set to reach Jammu ahead of Ganesh Chaturthi which begins September 2 onwards. The India-Pak Border cha Raja is a 6.5 feet-tall Lord Ganesha idol that will be taken to a village temple in Jammu. Along with the 6.5 feet-tall idol, there are two other smaller idols that are being taken to Jammu.

A woman from Jammu, Kiranbala Isher will be taking the three Ganpati idols from the city back to her state — India-Pak Border cha Raja for a temple in Poonch near the Line of Control where she lives, and the other two for two Maratha regiments based there.

However, this is not the first time Isher is transporting an idol for Ganesh Chaturthi from Mumbai as she has been doing this since the last four years. The big idol is travelling in the luggage van.

However, the major concern for Isher is that after Article 370 was revoked by the Central government, there has been unrest in Jammu and Kashmir. Therefore, she is hoping that despite the restrictions — Jammu does not have as many as Kashmir — the idol will get the customary welcome by committee members of the Poonch-based Shiv Durga Bhairav Mandir Trust and her own family members.

The idol has been created by specially-abled artist Vikrant Pandhare at his workshop in Shri Siddhivinayak Chitrashala,  Kurla (Mumbai).
