This Ganesh Chaturthi, we encourage you to be environmentally responsible: as our ancient ancestors recognized if it didn’t come from the waters, it probably doesn’t belong in there. Meanwhile none of us have ever seen God, but our parents are the embodiment of God. They love us and are concerned about us, but we tend to neglect them. Treat your parents well, love and respect them. The act of circling the parents shows that parents represent the world for Ganesha.
Just as the creation of Ganesha has different stories, there are numerous stories revolving around the initiation and the way in which the festival is celebrated. There are different versions over how the festival began getting celebrated and few believe that it was initiated during the Maratha warrior king Chatrapati Shivaji and is celebrated from then.
Further the birth festival of Lord
Ganesha, Ganesh Chaturthi, is observed during Bhadra month between mid August and
September and this year the celebration will happen between August 25 and September
5. Prior to the festival, clay models of Lord Ganesha are made and painted, and
decorated and worshiped for 10 days. The procession begins from 11th day and
people dance and sing prayers worshiping their deity's idol, and then the idol
will be taken to water bodies and immersed.
