Artist's Description

Oom Gana.. Ganapataye Namaha..!! Water color on Paper.

The story goes that Shiva and Parvati were leading a very idyllic life at Mount Kailash . The only hitch in the entire proceedings was that Shiva used to disappear for meditations leaving Parvati very lonely. She prayed to Lord Vishnu to grant her a boon, which the Lord happily obliged. Ganesha was a very beautiful child and all the Gods came to bless him. Only Sani Dev, his maternal uncle, failed to make an appearance for he was cursed that if he looks at anybody, his head would be instantly dismembered. When Parvati insisted, much to his reluctance he gazed upon Ganesha’s visage and to his horror found his nephew’s head get torn away from the body.

Lord Vishnu tried to remedy the situation. On the foothills of Mount Kailash , he found an elephant and immediately beheaded the creature and imposed the pachyderm’s head onto Ganesha’s body. Parvati was dismayed at the entire proceedings. In order to alleviate her sorrow at her son’s mutilated head, Shiva granted his son, Ganesha, a boon that his presence will be invariably invoked whenever any new undertaking is carried out. Ever since then Ganesha has been worshipped as Vinayak (knowledgeable) and Vighneshwer (remover of obstacles). He blesses those who meditate upon him. Ganesha, through astrology, helps us to know, what can be achieved and what cannot be.
