Ganesh Chaturthi through the eyes of a seven year old....

Here are a few lines Samhith wrote about Ganesh Chaturthi... The words are all his. I am simply typing them out for him....

We celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi for ten days. We celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi because one time Gowri comes down to earth and Shiva tells Ganesha to bring her back. That time Ganesha stays on earth for ten days. Some Ganesha idols are Lalbaugcha Raja, Siddhi Vinayak, Tilak Nagar Ganpati and Raghuleela Ganpati. In some buildings, there are Ganpatis, like Deep Apartments, Radha Krishna Building. Gowri is special in Karnataka and Ganesha in Mumbai. Ganesh Chaturthi just got over. Ganesha is worshiped as Lambodara, Vinayaka and Gajanana. People immerse Ganeshas. Amitabh Bacchhan and Abhishek Bacchhan visited Lalbaugcha Raja. From my school, we went to see Tilak Nagar Ganpati. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi. 

Please do leave your comments.. They are sure to encourage Samhith to write more....
Usha, I am especially looking forward to your comment, and so is Samhith!


  1. Samhith, thank you for the information on why Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated. I remember our friendship began with your telling me the story of the marriage of Muruga to Valli. You should share more of these stories with us through your blog. Please write about the 3 Shiva temples in Tamil Nadu you went to a couple of years ago. I loved that story about the blind devotee abut can't recall it clearly.

  2. I didn't know the story behind Ganesh Chathurthi. Thanks for sharing this, Samhith :)

  3. Enjoyed reading this post...Looking forward to the next one.

  4. Soo good to read the stories :)
    Ask him to write more and do keep posting it :)
