Saturday Snapshot: September 3


We just celebrated Ganesha's Birthday. Hence I post four of the numerous Ganesha idols I possess. We did the actual Puja for the metallic one.

Fantastic Ganesh statue photos!

I see from your previous post that you're in a reading slump. I also see that Ganesha is the Lord of Obstacles - may he remove your reading obstacle very soon!

Lovely photos.

I do enjoy your sat posts.

I learnt about Ganesh with the year 2 group when I was a teaching assistant at school.

I agree that the blue one is my favorite. I don't know very much about Ganesha, but he/she looks cheery in that photo.
