Rituals
 
Workplaces usually remain close on this day as the machines are not to be put in use, but some arena might be cleaned up to perform a special Puja. Vishwakarma’s idol is installed, along with a statue of his faithful elephant and various offerings of fresh fruits are made to him. The pandals are beautifully decorated with flowers and mango leaves. The female workers or the family members of the owners of the factories apply vermilion on gadgets to ensure its long use. The machines are also first washed and then oiled. A huge variety of food items is prepared which are first offered to the God and then distributed among the workers as prasadam. The day also absolves the distinction between the employers and employees as everyone come together to enjoy the day. When all the rituals are completed, the idol is submerged in the water, and people join hands to seek for Vishwakarma’s blessings.
 
Kite flying is also part of the celebrations. People gather on the terrace of their offices and have kite flying competitions. Though the day is marked as a holiday for many workplaces, staff might opt to celebrate the day and arrange cultural programs. Some owners might also announce bonus or increments in the salaries for the workers on this auspicious day.
 
 
Mantra
 
While performing the Puja, one should chant the following mantra:
 
“Om Shree Shirshtinathaya Sarvasidhhaya Vishwakarmaya Namo Namah”.
 
 
Significance
