~ Ganpati Bappa Morya ~  

Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most popular 
festivals of India, it is that time of the year 
when thousands of Ganesha devotees 
far and wide eagerly look forward to 
the vibrant eleven day long celebrations. 
Beautiful statues of the lord are installed in
 homes and temples with a belief that 
'He, the remover of all obstacles' will 
shower his blessings on the family 
and protect them from  sufferings. 

My Ganesha 

Cucumber,tomato, olive .
Ganpati with his ek dant (one tusk ),  As per Hindu
 mythology his second tusk is broken. 

The eleven day long festivities comprise of 
several age old rituals, elaborate floral decorations,
 devotional songs, mantra recital and of course aarti
 and Prasad distribution. Prasad (also  called Prasadam) 
are generous offerings of modaks (sweet rice 
dumplings filled with coconut and jaggery)
and ladoos that are later distributed amongst
 the devotees and the children. 

After the elven day long festivities comes the
 time of murti visarjan or submerging the idols
 in the water which is  a symbolic representation
 of rebirth and regeneration and sums up 
the essence  of  celebratingthe rebirth of 
elephant headed Lord Ganesha in
 form of Ganesh Chaturthi. 

Happy Ganpati to all , may He bring you luck 
and prosperity today and always.
