      Thank you Gayathri avare 🙂 about the bagina we give it to gowri-
      My mother said- If you are doing the pooje in the temple or someones house give it to the priest’s wife after the pooje or some there or if you have daughter you can give it to her . or you can give it to anyone before sending gowri. for any reason If you cannot give before sending gowri t you can keep and give before ananthana chaturdashi. Adu illandre nive use maadbahudante.
      Hope it clears your doubt !
