Ganesh Chaturthi , a ten-day Hindu festival celebrated to honour the elephant-headed God Ganesha's birthday is just around the corner. The festival commemorates Lord Ganesha over a period of 1 and a half, five, seven or 10 days where people keep his idol in their houses before the final Visarjan. Every day of this time period is marked by celebrations, pooja, decorations, dancing and an over all sense of cheer. Ganesha is believed to bring luck and happiness in the homes of people who worship him and hence this is a festival of positivity and hope. People wear new clothes and dress up their best in a plea to make the festival more beautiful and please the lord.
A BRIEF HISTORY
Ganesha also known as as Ganapati or Vinayaka is the younger son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. He is known by 108 different names and is the Lord of arts and sciences and the deva of wisdom. He is honoured at the start of rituals and ceremonies as he's considered the God of beginnings. Also called as the Vinayak Chaturthi, the festival is celebrated with much pomp and enthusiasm all over India. The beauty of the festival lies in the decorations, happiness and excitement prevailing all around for about 10 days. Basically, Ganesha Chaturthi takes place in the Hindu month of Bhadrapaada that happens to start on Shukla Chaturthi and ends at Anant Chaturdashi.
