Gowri Ganesha Pictures

I hope you all had a wonderful and joyous Gowri Ganesha Festival. There was not much celebration at my place. I came back today at 10.00 AM from a client site @ Indiana. My Husband Raghavendra is in New Delhi, India for work. My daughter Sneha is at UNC, Chapel Hill. After I came back home, I did the bare minimum pooje, and prayed to Lord Ganesha that a grand celebration awaits him once my Husband and Daughter return home.

I went to my Sister’s place for Lunch, and what a feast I had at Suma’s place. Suma and her Mother-in-Law had prepared delicious dishes and I enjoyed every bite. Thanks so much Suma, and Aunty.

Below is the picture I took of the pooja I did at my place.

Gowri and Ganesha Pooja at my Sister Suma’s place.

Attached below is an email and Picture I received from Mr. Ragothaman

Dear Meera Ma’m,

I did Ganesh Chathurthi in a small way at my place today morning. I bought flowers yesterday and arranged the leaves and flowers around him so that it looks like he is sitting on a flower throne with a flower halo.
Made sweet and savory steamed modaks. I didnt get Jaggery here, since the store selling Indian stuff didnt have jaggery, so made the sweet stuffing with Turbinado sugar crystals, which has same taste and smell like jaggery. Got it at Whole Foods Market. Offered them with coconut and bananas, sugar candy and dry fruits. I hope He was satisfied. :)

Please feel free to share this with your readers.

Thanks and Regards,

Another email and Picture from Mrudula, Ireland.

Hello Meera

I am Mrudula from Bangalore currently residing in Ireland. We also did our Ganesha Habba with utmost devotion and satisfaction. I’m married to a Tamilian Iyer so the sweets we make are called kozhukottai which was actually my first trial, but they came out good if not better. Guess will learn with practice. I follow your blog often to have a look at the many proceedings of the festivities as well as many many lyrics which my mom sings.

I’m attaching a photo of our Ganesha and would love to see it posted on the blog.

God bless you and your family with good health and prosperity. Awaiting the photos of grand celebration of Ganesha Habba at your home.

with love n regards,
Mrudula Mohana

    Meera avare,
    Can you or anyone who reads this “amazing” website give me details of how to do “eleyashtami” pooje? I am married to a ‘deshashtha’ madhwa family and they have that tradition. My parents are “badaganaadu” madhwas and we did not have that pooje. Thanks
