Do you know how was the name of Ganesha derived? Well, it came out from two Sanskrit words, 'Gana' which means group and 'Isha' which means Lord.

According to Hindu mythology, Lord Ganesha was born during the Hindu lunar month of Aavani on the fourth day (chaturthi) of a bright fortnight. This is the reason why Lord Ganesha and Chaturthi are being correlated for thousands of years.

Do you know that on this day, only Lord Shiva declared his beloved son Ganesha as superior to all existing gods except Lakshmi, Vishnu, Shiva and Parvati.

Very few know that Ganpati is known to be the God of wisdom and power. He is also known as the removal of obstacles and so people worship him before starting any new work.

Popularly known as 'Lambodara',  'Buddhi Pradaayaka’, ‘Vighna Harta', Lord Ganesha is blessed with 108 different names.

You would be surprised to know that in many places in India like Maharashtra and Andhra Pradesh, Ganesha Chaturthi festival is being celebrated for 10 long days followed by fasting and puja.
