Ganesh Chathurthi or Vinayagar Chathurthi or Vinayak Chathurthi is a big festival celebrated by Hindus all around the world as the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha. This festival comes around the end of monsoon during Hindu month of Bhadra (between mid-august to mid-September) and it lasts for 10 days which ends with Ananta Chathurdashi.
Though Ananta Chathurdashi marks the day of colourful Ganesha immersion processions, it is actually devoted to the worship of Lord Vishnu and Chathurdashi means 14th as it falls on 14th day of bright fortnight or ‘Shukla Paksha’ in the Hindu month of Bhadra.
Enough said, this festival brings harmony to Hindus where people in community join together in groups and brandish a grandeur Ganesha idol made of clay, raise platforms and worship that deity and do pooja twice everyday till the immersion day. On these 10 days, in every street you will find big colourful Ganesha idols placed and worshipped by everyone with devotional music and chants and offerings to God which brings people together in spirituality.
People also place their own small Ganesha idols at home and do pooja twice daily and offer pure water along with milk, honey and sweets and worship until the immersion day. Lord Ganesha, being my favourite God, is always worshipped first by Hindus before starting any puja, marriage or special occasions or almost any task.
Lord Ganesha is known as Destroyer of Obstacles and is also a symbol of Wisdom. Let’s celebrate this Ganesh Chathurthi so that our obstacles are heard by the Lord and we gain wisdom and spread happiness among everyone.
