Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi  is the celebration of Lord Ganesha  or the elephant headed god as he is popularly known throughout the world. Each year Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with a lot of excitement and joy, but what exactly is Ganesh Chaturthi and what does it signify.
The hindu religion has been studied and interpreted by different people in different forms including the myriad rituals that are performed to the deities but the essence of all the interpretations is the same and leads one towards the supreme god.
Celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi is one such festival which reinforces the Advaita vedanta principle.Advaita (non dual in Sanskrit)refers to the identity of the true Self, Atmanwhich is pure consciousness and the highest reality,Brahman , which is also pure consciousness.

As I set my first foot forward in my new endeavor I rely on nothing else but that one word “hope”. I invite you to come along with me in my journey where I create, learn, experience, share and enrich myself and try to help my fellow men in the process. I believe an artist and his art are not separate but one and the same and it’s the artist’s viewpoint on various things in his life that gets depicted in his art. Hence this blog will talk about all those experiences that I come across and my views on them. I hope to see this blog evolve as a meeting ground for exchange of ideas, thoughts and experiences where your feedback as an artist/reader will add to the di…
