Are you looking for Ganesh Chaturthi Wishes? We have got you covered!
Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most widely celebrated & loved 10-day festival marking the birth of the elephant-headed deity Shree Lord Ganesha, the God of Prosperity and Wisdom. It begins on the fourth day (Chaturthi) of the month of Bhadrapada (August–September), the sixth month of the Hindu calendar. The Indian festival Ganesh Chaturthi assumed the nature of a grand public celebration when the Maratha ruler Shivaji (c. 1630–80) saw it as a way to encourage nationalist sentiment among his subjects, who were fighting the Mughals. In 1893, when the British banned political assemblies, the festival was revived by the Indian nationalist leader Bal Gangadhar Tilak. Today the festival is celebrated in Hindu communities worldwide and is particularly popular in Maharashtra and parts of western India.
