5th September

Nothing happens today. Sorry.

Ganesh Chaturthi (2017): Ganesh’s birthday. The goddess Pavarti as she wanted to have a bath in peace without her husband Shiva looking in, so she created Ganesh out of sandalwood paste. Ganesh guarded the door and Shiva was so angry that Ganesh wouldn’t let him in that he knocked his head off. Pavarti was quite cross that Shiva had decapitated her son, and Shiva felt sorry so he found an elephant’s head and put that on. In India Hindus make big models of Ganesh for parades, so why not make one out of play-do?
