​Bollywood Celebs Extend Warm Wishes On Ganesh Chaturthi
Bollywood celebrities such as Isha Koppikar, Hema Malini, Kunal Khemu, and more took to their social media profiles and extended warm wishes on Ganesh Chaturthi.
The Ganpati festival is celebrated every year as the birth of Lord Ganesha. It is believed that Ganesha was born mid-day, which is why the most opportune time for doing Ganesha Puja is mid-day as per Vedic astrology. This year the celebrations will begin from August 22 onwards. The lord is considered as a symbol of wisdom and good fortune.
Veteran actress and politician Hema Malini took to her social media and wrote, “The most loved god of the Hindu pantheon, Ganesh Ji is the harbinger of good and is worshipped far and wide with fervor. May this Ganesh Chaturthi bring u all health, happiness & prosperity & save u from evil. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi”
Actress Isha Koppikar also wrote, “Ganpati Bappa Morya...Mangal Murti Morya. Here's wishing you and your family a very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi #GaneshaChaturthi #ganpatifestival #GanpatiBappaMorya”
Actor Kunal Khemu shared, “Ganpati Bappa Moriyaa!!!”
Legend has it that once his mother, Goddess Parvati, had asked Lord Ganesha to guard the entrance while she took bath. However, Lord Shiva came at that very moment, and trying to enter was stopped by Ganesha. This angered Shiva and he severed Ganesha’s head. Seeing this, Goddess Parvati was heartbroken, leading to Shiva instructing his ganas to look for the head of a living creature to replace Ganesha’s severed head. They found a baby elephant’s head and this is how Lord Ganesha came back to life and later was named Ganpati by Lord Shiva.
