28th Aug: After a #INDvsPAK2022 cricket match rival fans bantered. Such banter is commonly seen amongst boisterous football fans too, it was non-religious & became serious only when an individual supporting the #Pakistan cricket team snatched and disrespected the #India flag.

#GaneshChaturthi is a very very big day in Pune.

As sad as it is to bid farewell, #GaneshVisarjan is an even bigger deal!

It’s something you should absolutely try and experience first hand at some point.

It starts with the Rangoli. The boys and girls who do it are amazing artists specially since you practically get only one shot.

A constant fracture is the “Bhagwa” “भगवा”.

The other two constants are the people’s Smartphones and the Dhol Tasha troupes. This is the culmination of their efforts.

It’s incredible what they pull off in this heat and humidity.

Good to see some young ones too.

#GanapatiBappaMorya is trending and often is a chant used during #GaneshaChaturthi . What is "Morya". The most logical one being it is a combination of 2 marathi words - mhora (soon) & ya (come) meaning come soon which would go with the slogan
But WHO is Morya..... a Thread
By other accounts Morya refers to Saint Morya Gosavi considered chief spiritual progenitor&the most important saint of Ganapatya sect.Tales of his devotion to the lord are unmatched with stories revolving around how the Lord blessed him with multiple encounters #GaneshChaturthi
Morya Gosavi is supposed to have been in the time period of 13th-17th century. His life was filled with divine revelations &miracles. He worshipped at the Moreshwar Temple in Moregon Pune which is the starting &ending point of worship of 8 types of Ganesha . #GaneshChaturthi2022

BREAKING: Due to difference in opinion before another bench, Sr. Adv. Dave mentions this case before #CJI led bench now.
Sr. Adv Kapil Sibal says in 2022, "they wake up and say they have to perform it (Ganesh Chaturthi)"
"Everything will be lost," says Dave
The #CJI led bench is now hearing the case. Bench says it is appropriate for this to go before a 3-judge bench which does not include Justice Dhulia (having been party to it earlier).
#CJI says the case can be put up in a few minutes by another bench which may be constituted.
The bench has risen, has communicated to the lawyers that it intends to come back in a few minutes to check if other judges are available to hear this.
Dave says this is an extraordinary case and he is willing to attend the hearing at the judges residence as well. #SupremeCourt

While #GaneshUtsav is celebrated across #Maharashtra & India, few know that the genesis of these public celebrations lie in the communal conflict that happened in the late 19th century.
#LokmanyaTilak #Ganapati #Muharram #Hindu #Muslim #Pune #Mumbai #GaneshChaturthi #Tilak
In August 1893, there was a massive communal riot around the Hanuman Temple at Pydhonie in #Mumbai. The #Marathi textile mill workers entered the fray, and the violence intensified. The army was summoned, but more riots were reported from places like Raver and Yeola.
As @BharGo8 notes: Before industrialisation, #Mumbai was a #Hindu minority city. The demographics changed due to the influx of the Marathi workers from the Konkan after the launch of the textile mills. The 1893 riots (not those in 1992-93) changed the social fabric of #Mumbai

#Thread Idi0t’s Guide to #NoBindiNoBusiness, for the trolls who deliberately misinterpret the hashtag n the thought behind it. Repeat after me, #No_Bindi_No_Business is about CHOICE. It is not a compulsion, it is not a law. It is about the right of the ordinary Hindu to say NO!
When brands advertise for Hindu festivals like #AkshayaTritiya #Ugadi #Deepavali #GaneshChaturthi it is a reasonable expectation that they should respect the consumer’s culture, traditions, symbols. A bindi/Tilak/sindoor is one of the prominent Hindu symbols #NoBindiNoBusiness
If a brand wants Hindu money, the brand HAS to respect Hindu sentiments. The ads have to reflect the Hinduness, the joy, the spiritual significance of the festival. You want Hindus to buy gold from you for #AkshayaTritiya then show respect to Hindu culture. #NoBindiNoBusiness

Section 40 in The Wakf Act, 1995

The Board may itself collect info regarding any property which it has reason to believe to be wakf property!

This basically says, A board made up of Muslims can acquire ANY PROPERTY IF IT BELIEVES/FEELS LIKE ACQUIRING IT!

THREAD: #GaneshChaturthi

Why do we immerse Lord Ganesha idol into water after worshipping it?

- In India, for thousands of years Hindus have made idols and then immersed them in water. Many foreigners feel it is a strange thing to do.

Contd.. Image
Why is the God Ganesha decorated ceremoniously and worshipped lovingly for several days and then immersed in the sea, river, or lake? There is a beautiful concept behind this immersion.
The real secret of worship is in making an idol and then letting it disappear; giving a shape and form to the idol, and then letting it vanish onto the formless. It is all symbolic, the act of making an idol of Lord Ganesha, worshipping it, and then immersing it in water.

Do You Know why the ritual of getting Bhagawan GaneshJi home started?
Maharishi VedVyasJi wrote Mahabharat in poetry form. He was unable to write it in Prose Form. So he requested Bhagwan GaneshJi to do the task for him 🚩1/4
🕉 The process of writing was going to take days and nights, this would have tired GaneshJi & he was not to take even water during this writing. This would have raised temperature of Lord's body. So Maharishi VyasJi applied paste of mud on GaneshJi’s body🚩2/4
🕉 On Bhadrapad Shukla Chaturthi the writing started & ended on Anant Chaturthi. At the end of the writing on Anant Chaturdashi, Maharishi VyasJi saw that Lord Ganesh's body temperature had risen a lot, So he immersed the Lord in water to cool him down & wash off the mud🚩3/4

Ganpati bappa moraya!!! Ganesh chaturthi is around . I am hereby presenting a write-up about various Ganesha idols and their importance.
#ASTRO
#GaneshChaturthi
For good health and longevity - have a Ganesha idol made up of wood or clay.
Ps: Saturn is the karak for longevity and it also represents clay. Jupiter represents wood and is Jeevakarak.
For prosperity and health get the idol made up of sandalwood.
Ps: Rahu is the significator of sandalwood. Things made of sandalwood or sandalwood paste makes Rahu auspicious.

How can India be called a Hindu majority nation? It’s not. Muslims praying in a masjid next to #Telangana state assembly without following any social distancing rules but permissions r denied to celebrate #GaneshChaturthi with the fear of people not following rules #Sickularism
Despite assurances given that they will follow rules. Why r rules so strict for Hindus alone? Why can’t rules be applied to all faiths equally? When will #SleepingHindus wake up to these atrocities by state govts and police. Don’t cry later. Wake up now and save #SanatanaDharma
In AP, during lockdown #Muslims were given special permission of 1 hr to go to masjid & offer their prayers. But for #GaneshaChaturthi2020 celebrations are totally banned outside. One govt is sold out to @asadowaisi and another converted govt imposes total ban. Plight of Hindus

It has a history of centuries. It is a family tradition of this farmer from Urdigere to make pettakols' and sell them on Ganesh Chaturthi. They are doing it inspite of #COVID19 and a full market.

It is such traditions which has kept our culture alive.
