In the bustling and vibrant city of Mumbai, where tradition and modernity blend seamlessly, the arrival of Lord Ganesha, affectionately known as “Bappa,” is a grand affair that brings communities together. Every year, families across the city celebrate the Ganesh Chaturthi festival with unparalleled fervor and creativity. While colorful and elaborate idols of Lord Ganesha grace countless homes, one stands out in the Vileparle neighborhood: the Police-themed Bappa, a creation of Senior Police Inspector Rajendra Kane.
For several years now, Inspector Rajendra Kane has been using this unique platform to honor the brave men and women who dedicate their lives to protecting our nation.

Each detail of the idol is meticulously crafted, symbolizing the dedication, courage, and sacrifices made by the guardians of law and order. It serves as a constant reminder of the sacrifices made by officers who lay down their lives in the line of duty.
However, this Police Bappa is more than just a symbol of reverence; it also carries a crucial message for society. Inspector Kane believes that with great power comes great responsibility.
