Ganesha’s Secret: Food alone does not satisfy hunger
On this Ganesh Chathurti or Ganpati, as the festival is popularly known in Maharashtra, Devdutt Pattanaik on this extract from 7 Secrets of Shiva, narrates a few stories about Ganesha’s birth — the only during which Shiva beheads him; when Shiva and Shakti make love taking the type of elephants; when Shiva creates a child of his own image for His wife’s pleasure but since he looks too similar to the daddy, Shakti replaces his head with that of an elephant. A super obeisance to a God who is worshipped across India as the ‘remover of obstacles’ all the way through the 10-day festival which is celebrated with much gusto.
