Ganeshotsav!!!!!! Ganapati Bappa Moraya!!!!!
These are the days of Ganeshotsava over here. The word ganeshotsava is made up of two words Ganesh and utsava! Ganesha is a god and utsav means festival.This is one of the biggest festivals in India.This is festival celebrated individually as well as in public. Public form of festival was initiated by Lokamanya Tilak nearly 100 years ago in order to bring Indians together against British tyrants. This festival has now gone too far still the main aim of bringing people together still remains the same. A book of thousand pages may be written about Lord Ganesha, this festival, Lokmanya Tilak and public awareness and many more things regarding this festival . I am attaching a photograph of "Dagadusheth Halwai Ganpati" in this blog. This public 'Ganeshotsav ' committee is one of the richest in India and the idol of Lord Ganesha is also very beautiful and graceful.Not only millions of images of Ganesha but also many things about 'Ganeshotsav' can be found out easily on the net. Indians have introduced this festival with them wherever they have gone!!!!
