After aarti is done, the Ganesha idol is moved an inch forward, to prepare it for Visarjan. This is done to depict that it is time for the procession of Visarjan and Ganpati will leave the house now. Devotees fervently believe that when the Ganpati idol is taken out for visarjan, the lord also takes away with himself the various obstacles of the house and these obstacles are destroyed along with the immersion. This ritual is about bidding farewell to Lord Ganesha with deep respect and thanking him for staying with the devotees for 10 whole days. While carrying the idols to the water bodies and while immersing them, people generally chant in the Marathi language 'Ganapati Bappa Morya, Purchya Varshi Laukariya' which means 'Goodbye Lord Ganesha, return quickly the following year'
