Hindus across the world worship Lord Ganesha dearly, so much so that a ten day long festival is celebrated in India in the name of the Lord. Ganesh Chaturthi starts on the fourth day of Bhadrapada. Idols of Lord Ganesh are taken in a vibrant procession and installed in homes, offices and pandals. He is worshipped all ten days and various sweets and other savouries are offered to him. The festival ends with immersing the idol in lakes and rivers symbolising him going back to his mother. Lord Ganesha is worshipped with such devotion as he is known as the lord who grants wishes and boons. It is said that taking his name before starting anything auspicious will drive the obstacles in the path away. His artifacts are hence placed in every Hindu household. This portrait of Lord Ganesh carved on an Arecanut Leaf serves that purpose very well.
