Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations in Goa

The Festival of Lord Ganesh or Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with a lot of pomp and gaiety all over Goa and people of all religions take part in it.

Shiva and Parvati had two children Kartikkaya and Ganesh. Ganesh is the elephant-headed god of prosperity and wisdom and is probably the most popular of Hindu gods. Ganesh obtained his head due to his fathers notorious temper. Coming back from a long trip, Shiva discovered Parvati in her chamber with a young man. Not pausing to think that their son might have grown up during his absence, Shiva chopped off his head. He was then forced by Parvati to bring his son back to life but could only do so by giving him the head of the first living thing he saw an elephant. In every picture of Ganesh you will see a rat next to it, The rat it the vehicle of Lord Ganesh. The Festival of Lord Ganesh is celebrated with a lot of pomp and gaiety all over Goa, and people of all religions take part in it.
