Ganesh Chaturthi - Friday 29th August
Ganesh is Shiva's younger son. He is the giver of the wealth and comfort. Ganesh literally means the leader of the many. He is a very learned demigod. When sage Vyas wanted to write the epic of Mahabharat, he requested Ganesh to be his scribe. At the beginning of every Hindu ritual, Ganesh is worshipped first. Any auspicious occasion is incomplete without worshipping Ganesh. Ganesh is installed outside many Hindu temples even today. Many splendid temples are dedicated to Ganesh.
