Ganesh festival is celebrated on the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the God of wisdom, prosperity and auspiciousness, for the period from new moon in the lunar month in the month of Bhadrapada.
This year it falls on 23rd August.
Am missing the celebrations at in-laws for the second consecutive year. Last year it was because we were at Singapore and this year because it’s held at Pune and I cannot travel with the small baby. Plus the swine flu and all other viruses!
The above photo is of our Ganpati in the temple at my dad’s ancestral home in Pen.
Hoping next year I make it!
