Ganesha Chaturthi, the great Ganesha festival, also known as 'Vinayak Chaturthi' or 'Vinayaka Chavithi' is celebrated by Hindus around the world as the birthday of Lord Ganesha. It is observed during the Hindu month of Bhadra (mid-August to mid-September) and the grandest and most elaborate of them, especially in the western Indian state of Maharashtra, lasts for 10 days, ending on the day of 'Ananta Chaturdashi'.


The preparation starts one month in advance, with great enthusiasm, to celebrate this auspicious occasion. A life-like clay model of Lord Ganesha is made 2-3 months prior to the day of Ganesh Chaturthi. The size of this idol may vary from 3/4th of an inch to over 25 feet. The festival starts with the installation of beautifully sculpted Ganesha idols in homes and mandaps. These idols are decorated beautifully and show religious themes.


For 10 days, from Bhadrapad Shudh Chaturthi to the Ananta Chaturdashi, Ganesha is worshipped. The occasion also sees various cultural events being held every where, in which people participate with interest.

Ganesha emerged a distinct deity in clearly recognizable form in the 4th and 5th centuries CE, during the Gupta Period, although he inherited traits from Vedic and pre-Vedic precursors.[14] His popularity rose quickly, and he was formally included among the five primary deities of Smartism (a Hindu denomination) in the 9th century. A sect of devotees called the Ganapatya (Sanskrit: गाणपत्य; IAST: gāṇapatya), who identified Ganesha as the supreme deity, arose during this period.[15] The principal scriptures dedicated to Ganesha are the Ganesha Purana, the Mudgala Purana, and the Ganapati Atharvashirsa.

Aesthetics of Representing Cultural Paradigms in Rushdie

..., changeless, organic cosmos presents a contrast to the secular outlook. Midnight’s Children is an intense and revealing exploration of India’s culture and politics: humorous observations like ‘. . . the water shortage had reached the point where milkmen could no longer find clean water with which to adulterate the milk . . .,’ and wildly imagined events where a communist snake charmer induces a pair of cobras to act out a rich man refusing to give alms to a beggar, police harassment, hunger, disease, and illiteracy. The swapping of kids allows Rushdie to portray the real India – a multiplicity of parallel dimensions --- Hindu/Parsi/Islamic as well as mega-rich/shockingly poor simultaneously along with other pluralities. Other elements that define the prevalent culture are usage of superstition, celluloid world of films, peep-show men. The narrow lanes and crowded streets had drainpipe dormitories, beggars in box-cars, grown-up men with babies’ legs and Indian beggars. When he talks of Bombay his fondness for the city offers holistic view of local Kolis, their festivals of ‘Coconut Day’, fondness for rice, style of draping sari and pomp of Ganesh Chaturthi. Rushdie makes use of all religions, although his choice of material is unbiased but true to the ethics of the work. Hinduism, with its millions of gods, its fluid mythology and absorptive, transformative energies, conceptualizes India’s inclusiveness. The author, though Muslim himself, is representative of Indian......

To root out corruption, social solidarity will be a great deal helpful. In a mohalla matter, if all the residents are united, the municipal counselor dare not ask for a bribe to have a lawful work carried out. The overwhelming presence of the local residents in large numbers will be a deterrent to the corrupt official who will have no option but to turn the tail.

...-heartedly, for no reason and with no exception, this is unconditional love. One should set aside some time for devotional service that celebrates a higher power through the chanting of their name; this is called Japam. This shows that we adore and love completely. Having an intimate relationship with one’s self and the Divine, is the road map to salvation. After visiting the ISKCON website, here are some short examples of the spirituality of chanting and devotion. One example of Bhakti is the Hare Krishna chanting with the 108 prayer beads which a true devotee begin with the head bead which goes around the beads 16 times a day as a form of mediation or devotion. The devotees can also use a two-headed drum from India while they chant the Hare Krishna song as a form of worship service. Another form of worship is dancing, which resemble the Pentecostal Christians. Bhakti-yoga uses chanting, devotion, or mediation as a way to connect with the Divine.
