Ganapathi Bappa Moraya

Hindu festivals may really not be about religion. Of course, mom had our upbringing by taking me & my sister to Hindu temples in our childhood and make us pray various Tamil Gods. But all stopped as I started questioning and became rebellious with age; I stopped practicing prayers and visiting temples. It is amazing how time takes us through so many experiences and it makes you, a BETTER YOU. Although we still don’t have answers to all our childhood questions yet our perspective changes dramatically. I firmly believe religion is a framework only to make sure, everyone is honest to each other and it teaches us not to think/do harm our society.

Dipti and I being from a different part of the country, we thoroughly enjoyed celebrating Ganapathi Pooja. We took our time today to make our own local prasad (offering) for the lord, Ganesh/Ganapathy. It certainly was fun trying to compete with our foods yet helping each other. Hopefully, we celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi every year with family and friends.
