Mythological Saga

The mythological saga related to “seeing the moon on this day is considered as inauspicious”.

According to SkandaSkandaSkanda
The fifth manifestation of the Durga worshipped on Navratri...
Purana, once Ganesha was invited in Chandralok (Land off Moon God). He ate so much that his big pot-shaped belly could not contain it, and when started to walk, he fell. The complete food came out as his pot-shaped belly burst and then, he put that snake as a belt around his belly.

Moon was watching the whole incident and could not control himself and started laughing. Ganesha got angry and cursed the moon that whoever looks at the moon on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi will be blamed for doing wrong. It is “why seeing the moon on this day is considered as inauspicious?”
 
History

Lalbaug is one of the most prominent locality situated in the heart of Mumbai city. In 1932, a market at Peru Chawl was closed. The fishermen and vendors who were doing business in the open market at peru prayed to Ganesha for a continual space for their market.

There was an administrative division that was formerly known as "Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav Mandal, Lalbaug”.  Local councilor of the mandal the late Shri. Kuwarji Jethabhai Shah along with other prominent members of the Mandal and residents made an effort and requested the landlord Rajabai Tayyabali to give them a plot. Rajabai agreed and thus helped to fulfill their wish for constructing a market.

On 12 September 1934, traders and fishermen established the Idol of Ganesha on a fulfillment of their desire of the market. The idol was dressed in the traditional dress of fisherman and, from that day onward, Ganesh has become a popular deity. Devotees gave ‘Lalbaugcha Raja’ in the Marathi language that means ‘Lal Bagh Ka Raja’ in the Hindi language. They pray in front of him to fulfill their wishes.

Link between the Kambli family and idol of Lalbaugcha Raja

MD Kambli was a sculptor of idols of Ganesh and mould the clay to form the Ganpati idols at many forms such as Chhagan Bhujbal's Ganpati at Mazgaon and a few in Girgaum. He had even participated in various exhibitions at festivals across Maharashtra.  

In 1935, they recommended the name of MD kambli and after his demise in 1952, his eldest son Venkatesh kabil took over, and after his death, Ratnakar Kambli, the current head of the family, started designing the12 feet idol of Ganpati. Ratnakar Kambli said that he kept team of craftmen but finer aspects are taken care by him only. The main thing is to kept in mind that the idol of Lalbaugcha Raja had to be maneuvered through these narrow lanes of Lalbaug, Chinchpokli and Girgaum at the end had to meet devotees on the way before reaching Chowpatty for ‘Ganesh Visarjan’.

It can be concluded that the idol of Ganesha was casted by the Kambli family for over eight decades especially during Ganesh Chaturthi utsav.
