The Ganesh Festival - Poem by Green Peace
Ganapati Bappa Moriya
Purche Varshi Laokar Ya.
The festival fills and spreads the air with
the smell of festivity.
Everyone is lost in the moods of speculation and reality.
Ganesh's wide forehead depicts wisdom,
And he himself epitomises prosperity,
good fortune and freedom.
The small eye indicates an eye for detail,
Even students enjoy this festival who burn the midnight oil.
His lending a willing ear,
Symbolises all the sorrow, agony and
misery which he will be able to hear.
He is invoked to remove obstacles and achieve success
While his vehicle, the rat symbolising
sagacity, prudence is no less:
The out sized nose or trunk signifies prestige,
By his ubiquitous features all are to be devoted obliged.
The tusk stands for strength.
He puts his toe down so as not to overburden the creature
but keep him warrant.
The tongue in its recesses speaks little.
He to the devotees their wishes and desires fulfils.
The large belly implies secretiveness.
His forgiveness to the deceitful and insane proves his kindness.
Ganesh, the God of learning and wisdom,
Every year the Ganapati fever grippes
the cultural capital of Maharashtra kingdom.
NOTE: The Ganesh Festival is a very important religious festival of the Hindus in India particularly in MAHARASHTRA (Mumbai &Pune)
