The holy Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi, also known as Vinayaka Chavithi, is observed for ten days each year. According to the Hindu calendar, the event is observed during the Bhadra month, which typically falls between the middle of August and September. It is the adored elephant-headed deity Lord Ganesha’s birthday. The majority of Hindus remember Ganesha and ask for his blessings before beginning any significant activity because he is revered as the God of wealth, sciences, knowledge, wisdom, and prosperity. There are 108 various names for Lord Ganesh, including Gajanana, Vinayaka, and Vighnaharta. Hindus all across the world rejoice and celebrate this occasion with tremendous devotion. In India, states like Maharashtra, Gujarat, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka, and Telangana are where it is most widely observed.

According to the first legend, Parvati made Lord Ganesha from dirt from her body to protect her without Shiva. He was tasked with keeping an eye on her bathroom door as she took a bath. Ganesha, who didn’t know Shiva was home, stopped him as he tried to enter. After an argument between the two over this, Shiva became enraged and severed Ganesha’s head. When Parvati learned of this, she was furious. Lord Shiva then pledged to bring Ganesha back to life. The devas were instructed to look for a child’s head facing north, but instead, they discovered an elephant’s head. Ganesha was created when Shiva attached the elephant’s head to the child’s body.

It is thought that those who pray to Ganesha can achieve their goals and aspirations. Therefore, the major purpose of Ganesh Chaturthi is to ensure that those who worship him are cleansed of their misdeeds and guided along the path of enlightenment. Since King Shivaji’s reign, the event has been observed historically. Lokmanya Tilak transformed Ganesh Chaturthi from a private celebration to a large-scale public holiday where people from all castes of society can congregate, pray, and be together during IndiDeva Shree Ganesha.
