20140823_131154

वक्रतुण्ड महाकाय सूर्यकोटि समप्रभ ।
निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा ॥
Vakra-Tunndda Maha-Kaaya Suurya-Kotti Samaprabha |
Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarva-Kaaryessu Sarvadaa ||

Ganesh Chaturthi will be  celebrated  this year on 25Aug ,with great devotion all over India. People bring home murtis (Idols) of Lord Ganesha and celebrate the festival by worshiping the Lord in a special way for a day and a half, 3 days, 5 days, 7 days or 11 days depending on the family tradition and commitment of each individual.
On the last day of worship the idol is taken out in a colourful and musical procession to be immersed traditionally in water. Ganpati is one of the most popular God. His blessings are invoked at most religious ceremonies as He is the one who can remove all obstacles to success. He is the giver of fortune and can help to avoid natural calamities.

All rituals start with Ganapati Pooja so that all obstacles will be removed.

My Contribution for 106th #Foodiemonday # Bloghop theme #GaneshChaturthiSpecial is a simple Chickpea Sundal that is always prepeared at my place as an offering to Lord Ganesha.
