Ganpati Bappa

The 10 day Ganesh festival will be arriving tommorow for which I was
eagerly waiting. Preparations have begun in my locality as well my
house. Lord Ganesh is the most popular god in the hindu mythology and
is the God of knowledge and wisdom. Almost everybody in India know
that this festival was initiated by Lokmanya Tilak to discuss tactics
against the British. These 10 days are full of fun not only Hindus but
also Muslims, Christians, and all other religions as most of them
participate in the programs (This signifies the communal harmony).
But this time we will have to be very careful because of the swine flu
scare. Make sure that you wear a mask or pu on a hankie on your nose
and mouth. Also stay away from people who are coughing and sneezing,
because they may be the carrier of the virus.

I wish all my friends a very very Happy Ganesh Chaturthi.
