During festival times these dols are worship .But When festivasls are over, it is not fair to ignore these idols,which would get spoilt or mistreated,if not looked after well , so they are immersed in water.

Ganesh festival in Maharshtra (alongwith immersion of the idol) much later. After it was suggested and started as a unity among people and prepare a united front for the freedom struggle by Bal Gangadhar Tilak. But, Durga Puja was there since a long long time (mosytly in Bengal), alongwith the immersion of Durgamaa's idol.
