THE GANESHA CHATURDHI - 2010

“Mudaakaraattamodakam…” the melodious Ganesha panchaashtakam was up in the air being transmitted many channels to enlighten the spirits of the Hindus who celebrate this famous festival. Abhyasites as usual were very punctual and celebrated this festival with a great religious note. As taught by Abhyasa, all the students of Abhyasa know the value of Ganesh Chaturdhi. Let us recall them once. Ganesha’s trunk is a matter of concern for many devotees. A trunk curled towards right indicates emphasis of moral values in life. The elephant head denotes wisdom and its trunk represents Om, the sound symbol of cosmic reality. In his upper right hand Ganesha holds a goad, which helps him propel mankind forward on the eternal path and remove obstacles from the way. The noose in Ganesha’s left hand is a gentle implement to capture all difficulties. The broken tusk that Ganesha holds like a pen in his lower right hand is a symbol of sacrifice, which he broke for writing the Mahabharata. The rosary in his other hand suggests that the pursuit of knowledge should be continuous. The laddoo (sweet) he holds in his trunk indicates that one must discover the sweetness of the Atman. His fan-like ears convey that he is all ears to our petition. The snake that runs round his waist represents energy in all forms. He is humble enough to ride the lowest of creatures, a mouse. All the Abhyasites being grouped into classes made eco friendly idols using only clay. Their creativity knew no boundaries. There were 7 excellent idols of Ganesh from different classes. After a charging half-day of making Ganeshas, the students went for delicious lunch followed by idol making programme. It was in the evening where Homam was performed by our beloved Principal. Ganesh puja was performed with lot of respect and Prasadam was distributed to all the students. After the story being told by the priest, the student left for the dinner. It was also a unique day where in most favoured festival of Muslims, “Ramzaan” is celebrated. Students went to mosque and offered prayers in the evening. It was the next day i.e 12.09.2010, where the air in Abhyasa was filled with electricity. As it was planned to go for Ganesh Nimajjan on the next day itself, all the students and parents gathered in the campus at 4.00 PM to perform the final rituals for this year to the Lord. The 5 student Ganeshas lead the procession followed by the Bhajans team. The vibrant dancing team followed them being followed by the Palaquins. Serving all the students and the public it was Prasad and water distribution team that came. It was a marvelous demonstration by all the teams on the roads of Toopran in all aspects. The procession stalled at the Toopran tank to say adieu to the Lord. After performing the rituals, all the Ganesha idols were immersed in the waters of Toopran tank. Everyone returned to the campus, their hearts filled with love for Ganesha. Thanks to all the parents who made this event a grand success.


Let us have some glimpses of the event...
