Today in India we are celebrating the birth of Ganpati or Ganesh, the elephant headed child of Shiva and Parvati. Sometimes known also as Lord Vinayaka, Ganpatiji, Vinayakar and Ganeshji, this God is the darling of the masses. Ganesh Chaturthi brings people of all religion, caste and creed together. Ganesh chaturthi is celebrated with great devotion all over India

People bring home murtis of Lord Ganesha and celebrate the festival by worshiping the Lord in a special way for a day and a half, 5 days, 7 days or 11 days depending on the family tradition and commitment of each individual.

On the last day of worship the idol is taken out in a colourful and musical procession to be immersed traditionally at a beach.

This is one of the most popular festivals in the Country. There are several reasons for this. Ganpati is after all a popular God. His blessings are invoked at most religious ceremonies as He is the one who can remove all obstacles to success. He is the giver of fortune and can help to avoid natural calamities.

Ganpati, the god of wisdom and the benevolent deity, Ganpati is the herald of auspicious beginnings and is the beloved deity of all.
