Ganesh is a god. He is mostly known as, Ganpati Bappa. Yeasterday I went to a arti,to celebrate Ganesh for coming for ten days. Ganesh was created by his mother by hand. His dad got furious for not letting him in for seeing his wife, when she was taking a shower. Ganesh’s dad cut of Ganesh’s head so his dad could go inside. Ganesh’s mom got really angry, when she heard that Ganesh had his head chopped off, and decided to kill Ganesh’s dad’s army. Ganesh’s dad decided that he will send his army to go find a head, to replace Ganesh’s head. Once the army came back they had an elephant head, so Ganesh’s dad could put it on Ganesh. So now Ganesh has an elephant head. Ganesh has one brother named Kartik, and a very close friend that is a mouse. Ganesh travels on that same mouse and his favorite sweets are, lado and modok. There are so many stories of Ganesh. I wear a necklace of Ganesh around my neck. One time in our old house we had Ganesh sitting on a place near our front door. After a while somebody stole him, so we had to buy a new one. When we moved into a new house my dad,became lazy and has not put Ganesh out side yet. We believe that Ganesh will protect you,and when we put him outside he will prevent the bad things from coming inside the house. One story is about when the moon laughed at Ganesh and how he lost some parts of his tusks. Another story is about how another god named Kuber wanted to show off his richness,so he planned a grand dinnerparty for Ganesh and his family. Ganesh was sent to go to the dinner party himself, because his parents thought that it would be okay so he ate and ate. Kuber couldn’t stop Ganesh from eating everything he went to ask for advice. Ganesh’s parents told Kuber to give Ganesh just a handfull of cooked rice with a humble heart.Kuber did that and Ganesh was back to normal.
