Ganesh Chaturthi

Yesterday was Ganesh Chaturthi, the day when people pray to Lord Ganesha who is treated as the first amongst the gods.

Ganesh Chaturthi is an occasion or a day on which Lord Ganesha makes hisGanesh Chaturthi presence on earth for all his devotees. It is also known as Vinayaka Chaturthi in Sanskrit, Kannada, Tamil and Telugu. It is not the birthday of Lord Ganesha. The festival is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Bhaadrapada, starting on the shukla chaturthi (fourth day of the waxing moon period). While held all over India, it is at its most elaborate in Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh, and other areas which were former states of the Maratha Empire. This typically comes sometime between 20th of August and 15th of September. The festival lasts for 10 days, ending on Ananta Chaturdashi.
