On Anant Chaturdashi, after paying homage to Lord Vishnu, a thread is being tied onto his arm. This thread could either be a silk thread or a cotton one and must have 14 knots in it. The Ganesh Visarjan is also celebrated on the same days as Anant Chaudas. The entire nation celebrates this festival with great zeal and enthusiasm. A lot many processions of the lord are also taken out in the masses to get everyone ringing in the festivity together.
