Ganpati Bappa Morya



This is the elephant god - Ganesha or Ganpati. Yesterday was the beginning of a ten day long festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. It is an Indian festival, which is celebrated with a lot of faith and fervor especially by the natives of the state of Maharashtra (even I am originally from Maharshtra). This is the statue of Ganpati that was worshiped at my place with family and friends in full attendance. I was responsible for the decoration and the preparation of the prasad. I got a lot of praise on both the accounts. So I am a happy girl. 'Ganpati Bappa Morya' is how we show our respect and reverence to the deity and that is how most of us greet each other through the ten days of festivities.Ganpati Bappa Morya!

You did a terrific job - it looks lovely. There's a little status of Ganesh at the Metropolitan Museum. People always leave a few coins in front of it.
