Why we do say #GanpatiBappaMorya ?

Morya Gosavi (14th c) was a popular saint and most famous devotee of Bhagwan Ganesha. Morya is believed to have been born due to the grace of Ganesha, in order to spread the importance of Ganesha among the masses.

Numerous legends recall his life. Morya became devoted to Ganesha when he started visiting the Morgaon temple of Ganesha. It is believed that due to the hindrance in Morya's services to the god in the popular Ganesha shrine,
Ganesha told Morya that he would appear in Chinchwad for Morya to worship, so Morya moved from Morgaon to Chinchwad, where Morya built a Ganesha temple. Consequently, Morya took sanjeevan samadhi by burying himself alive in his tomb.

Bengali God or Non-Bengali God?
Everyone has heard of Ganesh Puja in Maharashtra but very few know that Bengalis are also very fond of Ganpati. Ganesha made an elephantric entry long back in Bengal, the land of festivals. ImageImage
There's a famous saying in Bengali, 'Baro Mashe Tero Parbon' which means 'Twelve months, thirteen festivals. Almost every festival can be seen here and Ganesh Chaturthi is one of those. Ganpati has reserved place not only at people's homes but also in their hearts. ImageImage
The festival is highly celebrated in Bengal, specially in urban areas. Several pandals are set in the capital city and districts. The festival has become so popular that the organising committees, clubs come with schedules, something that's done before Durga Puja only. ImageImage

It was due to the Divine mercy of Lord Ganesh that we all have the greatest fortune to read Bhagavad Gita.

While Vyasdev was dictating & Lord Ganesh was writing, the feather pen broke. Then Lord Ganesh broke His teeth & started writing with His teeth & completed the book.... Image
In other 3 age's: Sat Yug, Treta, Dvapar Yug, the Vedic knowledge was mostly transmitted orally from Guru to Sisya.

But before Kaliyuga started Vyasdev decided that he should keep all his teachings in written form since the people of Kaliyug have very little memory power..... Image
