Ganesh Chathurthi 2013

Wish you a very happy Ganesh Chathurthi :)

Ganesha is my most favorite God!! A versatile handsome god who disguises himself is so many forms and styles. He is the most friendly god seen almost in every streets in India and the first god who is prayed during all festivals. Today being his day, we of course had to celebrate it with pomp and joy :)

We bought a new clay Ganesha this morning from the nearby market. I just loved the market space today, it was filled with people and vendors selling Ganesha idols of all sizes and decorations, loads of flowers, fruits and other products specific to the occasion. 

I enjoyed draping my Ganesha with new clothes and jewels. Doesn't he look smart!!???

Then comes the delicious prasadams that he loves. I made lots of Kolukattai / Modak with sesame filling and cashew filling this time. We also made a grand lunch feast for god today and offered it to him :)
