Ganesha Caturthi: 

A 10-day celebration of all things Ganesha!

You probably know him by his big ol' elephant head ... Ganesha is one of the most well-known and well-loved of the Indian deities. 

Here are some other fun facts about this fascinating character -

  • He's known as the Remover of Obstacles and a Lord of letters and learning. 
  • He LOVES sweets (ever heard of Modak?)
  • He is the son of Shiva and Parvati (and wait until you hear some of THIS family story!)
  • He often holds in his hands a bowl of sweets, his own broken tusk, an axe and a noose (wonder why?)
  • He's even got his very own festival - that is some serious love and devotion!
