GANESH CHATURTHI

God Ganesh is the Son of God Siva. He has many other names, Moraya, Vinayaka, Gajanana. He has an elephant face. It shows wisdom.  He loves modakas and coconuts. He has a plump body, short legs and a pot-like belly. He rides on a small mouse. All these make a wonderfully pleasing figure. He is the God of Gods. He is a great among the wise.

We worship him before starting any work  He removes all difficulties. He protects us from evil. The fourth day of Bhadrapada is his birthday. We celebrate this day as Ganesa Chaturthi. On this day people play on musical instruments. They sing bhajans.   Boys and girls dress in holiday clothes. There is joy everywhere.
