The Trunk of Ganesha

(Read Hindi version here) (इसका हिन्दी प्रारूप यहाँ देखें)

Ganesha is probably one of the most worshiped God in Indian mythology. With increasing popularity & demand market is full of idols in different shapes, sizes and poses!

Everything was going fine for centuries until in recent years Almighty himself started playing games with his disciples. I would have loved watching the play had he not involved me in the game. Every now & then I receive a call from my clients’ world over “Which side the trunk of Ganesha should be turned?” I don’t have any answer and just for two simple reasons:

* First that it’s just a myth. For years all was going well until few frauds for their own benefits started promoting it. No matter how much I try to explain to my clients, they are more convinced with someone’s somebody’s version!

* Second and more obvious reason is that by telling my clients which way the trunk should be, I don’t want to be the part of those frauds, who have already done sufficient damage to the beliefs of common man!

So all I can do is to pray to Lord Vaktratunda (name of Lord Ganesha, meaning bent trunk) to please straighten up his trunk and thus ending this controversy once and forever!
