Master Ganesha, according to conviction, is otherwise called Vighnaharta or the person who eliminates all impediments. He holds extraordinary importance in Hinduism where practically all customs start with his love.
According to Hindu folklore, Lord Ganesha was destined to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. It is accepted that Goddess Parvati once requested Lord Ganesha to watch her chambers. Complying with his mom, Lord Ganesha prevented Lord Shiva from entering the chambers. Maddened by this, Lord Shiva cut off his head. Goddess Parvati separated seeing this and took steps to annihilate the universe in the event that her child isn’t brought back. Ruler Shiva, subsequently, winds up supplanting Lord Ganesha’s head with that of a child elephant and favored him to be revered before some other God.
Individuals carry a symbol of Lord Ganesha to their homes and love it all through the celebration. The icon is decorated with blossoms and festoons before it is at long last inundated upon the arrival of Visarjan, denoting the finish of the 10-day festivity.
