The 24-year-old Patil of Vijay Nagar in Belagavi who is working as a software engineer in a private company in Bengaluru wanted to contribute something to his hometown and found the annual festival the right occasion. Patil said Maza Bappa will provide service only for 21 days (during the festival).

This app has two pages - one is exclusively for Mandals and the other for individuals. Patil provided user names and passwords to the members of Saravjanik Ganesh Utsav Mandals of Belagavi for uploading the latest photographs of their Ganesha idols and decorations. 

In the individual column, any person can register and post photos of domestic Ganesh idols. If viewers spot inappropriate photograph posted in the app, they can click on spam and the administrator will remove it, he said.
