#GaneshChaturthi has been quite the affair at our household from as long as I can remember. What started in 1935 as a celebration to mark the birth of my grandfather, has gone on for 84 years. Home-cooked food has remained an integral aspect of these day-long festivities.

The #GaneshChaturthi pooja, amongst other things, involves a #food offering (नैवेद्य/naivedya).

It started with around 5 items in the first year and an item was added every couple of years. This number bumped up to 32 in1985 and has remained the same ever since. 🍛🍚🥗🥘🥗🍲
It was unanimously decided this year, to pull back on the extravagant celebration for a variety of reasons. Hence, I decided to document it. All these items will still be cooked but never again, in unison. 👩‍🍳

@SUBRATSMSM Just looking at the crowds puts one in a mood to celebrate! Jai Ho! 🙏🏼

Another fun fact, the very creation of Ganesh, was rooted in #WomanEmpowerment

When Ganas of Mahadev failed to follow orders of Devi Parvati, She created Ganesh, Her obedient son, from clay.

@SUBRATSMSM She asked Him to guard the door, none to be allowed inside without Her permission.

The Child blocked the access of all visitors. Even Mahadev. 🙏🏼

@SUBRATSMSM Which led to quite an unrest. Mahadev didn’t even know who this new guard to His abode si Kailash was. He sent an army of Ganas and Demi-gods to take Him out.

But the Child proved too strong for them.

#Upakarma is the day a student of the Vedas renews their commitment to learning. The actual day of the Upakarma differs for the four branches of the Veda.
Yajurveda #upakarma - Is done on Dhanishta nakshatra (avittam) in Shravana month.
Sama Veda - Shravana Nakshatra in the Shravana month
Rig Veda - Hasta Nakshatra/Shukla Tritiya in Bhadrapada. This will invariably fall a day before #GaneshChaturthi
This is the day Vishnu assumed the #Hayagriva (horse head) form to recover the Vedas that were stolen by Madhu and Kaitabha. They were stolen by Madhu and Kaitabha on the bidding of Vishnu, in order to teach Brahma the Creator, a lesson in humility. #Upakarma

For in a raiment of gold and blue
There shall move on the earth embodied and fair
The living truth of you..."

Veiled in events he lives and working disguised in the mortal
Builds our strength by pain, and an empire is born out of ruins..”

Are forecasts we misspell,
But of what life or scene he who has measured
The boundless heavens can tell.."
