Festivals get kids all excited and Ganesh Chaturthi is no exception. Teach them these 5 Ganesha slokas this year! Many festivals bring communities together for colourful celebrations. An event that stands out particularly in the Western and Southern states, is the Ganesh Chaturthi, the birthday of the elephant faced Ganesha.
It falls on the fourth day of the Lunar month of Bhadrapadha; this year it is on the 17th of September. Interesting details of how he got his elephant head, why he is always the one who is worshipped first, even by the Gods and stories of many of his other exploits can be found in Tales of the Elephant God. This annual festival starts with the bringing home of clay idols of Ganesh a day before. Specially trained craftsmen make idols in various sizes using clay and colours selected to ensure that they are non-toxic.
Homes prefer modest sized ones, while those installed for public worship are large, some of them very large indeed! Once installed, pujas are offered every day both in the homes and in the public Pandals. The idol is kept with utmost reverence for various periods ranging from about 2 days to 11 days after which, the idol is taken in a procession with song and dance to be consigned to a water body, like the sea, river or a pond, following Artis and pujas.
