Floats paraded down the streets of central Paris on Sunday to celebrate the annual Ganesh festival. The parade celebrates the Hindu deity which is represented with the body of a man and the head of an elephant. The procession route, in the 10th district of Paris, is home to a growing Sri Lankan Tamil community and is sometimes referred to as Little Jaffna.
