Significance of Ganesha, Meaning of his creation

In her childhood,my sister once asked my mother why we worship such a strange god Ganesha. She was asking about elephant headed, pot-bellied, broken-tusked god who travels on a mouse. It sounds bit funny. But as strange it looks, this little peculiarity of Lord Ganesha has a deep spiritual meaning. It has a great significance when we connect this strangeness to our life. The symbolic representation of Ganesha has an easy to understand connotation. His image represents how one should see life and world around. With each of his body part, he teaches us how to live life blissfully. I read about it recently and here I am sharing it with you all.

On Vibhu's Birthday

Today's kids are lucky have Parents like us

Don't you think that our kids are lucky to have parents like us? I do think and I am feeling it for long time. Few days back my sweet sister sent a toy piano for my son. Its really an amazing toy having a key board, different style buttons for animal sounds and it flashes light depending upon music. Although its can't catch interest of my son towards itself. Two people of my family really enjoyed it,my mother in-law and my husband. I heard my mother in- law saying that she couldn't afford such type of expensive toy for my husband in his childhood. At the same time, I noticed my loving husband playing with keyboard. My mother in-law stays with us so we talk a lot on different topics. One from those list of subject is her early married life and start of her motherhood. She got married in a typical conservative Brahmin family where husband-wife talking in open was a crime. They were allowed to see each other during night only with some conditions applied also. All household …
