POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Ganesa is the darling God of millions of people in India. I have completed twenty poems on Ganesa, as a Series in Poem Hunter. To comprehend the legends and philosophy of Ganesa worship thoroughly, please read the poems of Ganesa from 1 to 20. All these poems are based on my book entitled "Jai Jai Sri Ganesa" published as a hard bound book with images, mantras, musical compositions, poems and essays in detail and printed in art paper in the year 2017. With this poem, I conclude my Series on Ganesa. It was a marvellous journey for me to write on one of my favourite Gods. Thanks to all my friends for reading these poems on Sri Ganesa - the elephant head God with several names like Ganapati, Gajanana, Gauriputra, Lambodhara, Vinayaka, Vignaraja, Mahaganapati………………so on! "Mandal" means gathering together in large numbers in a festival ground, stage or Pandals followed by procession with the deity.
