“99 Thoughts on Ganesha” by Devdutt Pattanaik explores the stories, rituals and symbols associated with Hindu God Ganesha

If you have ever wondered why is Ganapati always riding on or accompanied by rat? Why is a snake coiled around Ganesha's stomach or neck? Why Ganesha is fond of Modaka as a sweet in particular? Why blades of grass, known as Dhurva form a critical ingredient of Ganesha worship. Then your querry is about to get resolved, and RightBooks.in is here to get it done for you. The answers to these questions that can set one thinking can be found in this Devdutt Pattanaik drafted work called “99 Thoughts on Ganesha, to make it easy to relate to each one of them post reading this book. Dr. Pattanaik has made it interesting by dividing the book into twelve parts and showing the importance of Ganapati in family, festivals, stories, symbols, temples etc. An interesting area covered under "family part" is that of Lakshmi and Saraswati. Lakshmi, is the goddess of wealth. When she enters the house, there is prosperity. Saraswati is the goddess of wisdom. When she enters the house, there is peace. But the two of them do not stay in the same house, which is why peace and prosperity rarely co-exist. The only God who can bring them together is Ganesha. If an individual gets everything in life very smoothly right from good education, good job, good money, own house, dream life partner coupled with aristocratic life style at the right time when desired then it would be very unlikely that one might remember God that off and on when life is sailing smoothly. The reality is in life everyone gets their share of knocks and goes through turbulent times. A vacuum of one's desire and hopes is always left unanswered so that we always remember God. He is the god of all achievements, or Sidhdhi, yet we all know very little about him. This book brings together 99 meditations to better understand the stories, symbols and rituals of that adorable elephant-headed Hindu god who removes hurdles and brings prosperity and peace. Known variously as Ganapati, Gajanana, Vinayaka or Pillayar, he can help all of us score a century in the game called life.
