|God Ganesh is the
Son of God Siva. He has many other names, Moraya, Vinayaka, Gajanana. He has an elephant
face. It shows wisdom. He loves modakas and coconuts. He has a plump body, short
legs and a pot-like belly. He rides on a small mouse. All these make a wonderfully
pleasing figure. He is the God of Gods. He is a great among the wise.
We worship him before starting any work He removes all difficulties. He
protects us from evil. The fourth day of Bhadrapada is his birthday. We celebrate this day
as Ganesa Chaturthi. On this day people play on musical instruments. They sing bhajans.
Boys and girls dress in holiday clothes. There is joy everywhere.
