Ganpati Bappa Morya
Pudcha Varshi Lavkar Ya

Ganesh Chaturthi is the festival celebrating the birth of Lord Ganesha. It falls on the Shukla Chaturthi (4th day after Amavasya) in the month of Bhadrapada of the Hindu calendar i.e. August-September of the Gregorian calendar. Now this is common to the whole of India. And everyone has their own list of prasad that they offer to the lord. And all the panchang reading elders will tell us that when the Chaturthi starts etc and for how many days the festival will be for (usually 10) but due to the lunar calendar that is followed there will be some ghatika calculations which will determine if the festival ends on the 10th or 11th day.

But thanks to Bal Gangadhar Tilak Maharashtra has a special way of celebrating it. There the devout bring home idols and do pooja for a day and half and give a send-off to their favourite god on the next day that is on Panchmi. Then there are also those who keep the lord in their homes for five days. In between they also have a Gauri sthapana and worship the mother and son together for 2 days and then see them off on the 5th day. That day is Gauri visarjan.

Then there are the Sarvajanik Ganesh Mandals. It is here that the youth get to show their ideas of decoration, event organisation etc. The mandals dedicate themselves to various causes and highlight this in their pandals. There is the usual bhajans playing through the 10 days of the festival etc. Then on the 10th day that means Anant Chaturdashi day there is the aarathi, the final pooja and then the idols along with all the flowers used for decoration etc are taken for immersion. The large ones are on open trucks and we have all the young revellers dancing to the beat of Nashik Dhols and recorded music and the cry of GANAPATI Bappa Morya filling the air space. (Environmentalists will call it high decibels of noise pollution). And there are the large numbers of people out on the streets till wee hours of the next morning waiting to see the last huge one immerse in the sea. If I am not wrong the last one is always Lalbaugcha Raja.

Lalbaug is a locality in the old Bombay region. This is where during the freedom struggle Balgangadhar Tilak had started the practice of community worship of the Lord as a way to protest the diktat of limit on number of people congregating.

Lalbaugcha Raja has a story of its own. It seems the market at Peru Chawl was shut down in 1932 effecting the livelihood of the fisherfolk and other vendors who operated from there. These vendors vowed to Ganesha for a permanent place for their market. The collective efforts of the councillors and prominent local residents of those times the landlord Rajabai Tayyabji gave the land for the existing Lalbaug Market.

In 1934 as a thanksgiving or fulfilment of their vow (Navasa in Marathi) the traders and fisherfolk came together to start this sarvajanik pandal. Since 1935 the same family -Kambli family- has been designing the idol which has kept nearly the same “sitting pose” over the years. The idol is always around 18-20 feet tall. The parts are made at their workshop in the adjoining lane and assembled in the pandal. The grand old man of the Kambli family then comes and paints the lord’s eyes. The decoration is always contemporary and this year it was “Chandrayaan”. The visarjan procession of Lalbaugcha Raja is eagerly awaited through the lanes that it takes to reach Girgaum Chowpatty. There are special trucks, trailers and boats with pulleys that help take the idol kilometres into the sea so that it can be given a proper deep-sea immersion to match its size.

P.S.: the details about Lalbaugcha Raja are from a documentary that I saw last week on National Geography Channel.

We had the N. Chandra’s “Ankush” (1986) which used the Ganesh visarjan backdrop to show the rivalry between two Ganesh pandals and how it erupts into street fight.

In Remo D’Souza’s “ABCD- Any Body Can Dance” (2013) we had a sequence showing Ganesh Visarjan. There was this wonderful dance number and the song was true to the Ganapati Bappa Morya spirit. The movie had a collection of dance freaks who were essentially a part of Remo’s troupe most of who are independent choreographers now. in addition we have Prabhu Deva and Ganesh Acharya, in major roles in the movie, present in this song.

I thought that this song is ideal for today. The song is sung by Shankar Mahadevan & Vishal Dadlani. The song is written by one Mayur Puri and Sachin-Jigar are the music directors. This means that this song would have qualified in the series of “Music Director singing for another music director list” that we had from Arunkumar Deshmukhji a few years back. (Both Shankar Mahadevan and Vishal Dadlani are music directors as we all know).

This is the link to the song:-

Blog Day : 3709 Post No. : 14636

Today, we are celebrating an eternal birth anniversary – anniversary of the One who is the First Worshipped on all occasions.

There are many tales and variations, that tell of the origins of Lord Ganesh. The telling, as per the Shiv Puraan goes like this. A time was when Lord Shiv went into meditation for a very long period of time. On one occasion, Nandi, the chief of the Ganas of Lord Shiv was not on Mount Kailash. Goddess Parvati started preparing for her bathing rituals. Nandi was not present at the abode, and the Lord Himself was in deep meditation. Wondering and waiting as to who would guard the doorways while she took her bath, Goddess Parvati fashioned a form of a boy child from the turmeric paste that she had applied on to herself. As the form took shape, she then breathed life force into him. A child, as yet un-named, was brought to life. Goddess Parvati instructed him that he is Her son, and that he would obey only her commands. She further instructed him to guard the doorways of the abode, while she was taking her bath. The newborn young child took the instructions to heart and stood vigilant at the doorways.

While Goddess Parvati was still taking her bath, Lord Shiv completed his meditation and arose. He came towards the abode, only to find a fine young child guarding the doorways. Now, the child was not familiar with who this fatherly figure was, as he had not yet been so instructed by Goddess Parvati. In the absence of that knowledge, for him, the prime duty was the last instructions he had received, to guard the doorway and not allow anyone to enter. He pleaded politely with the Lord, to wait. But of course, the Lord was only returning to his own abode an could not understand why he was being prohibited to enter his own abode. The exchange between the Lord and the child took toll of the patience of the Lord, and in a fit of piqued annoyance, threw his trishul (trident) at the child in a manner that the child was beheaded.

He entered his abode. Goddess Parvati had completed her ablutions by then and was ready. When she saw her Lord in the abode, she was happy, and made preparations to offer him something to eat. She served the items in two platters. The Lord asked her, for whom was the second platter. Then Goddess narrated the tale of how she had created a boy child from the turmeric paste from her own body, and left him to guard the doorways while she took bath. And she enquired that the Lord must have met the child as he enter the abode. The Lord now realized what had happened, and then narrated the events as they had transpired outside the doorway.

On hearing the episode of the demise of her just newborn or newly created child, Goddess was overcome with grief. Since she also is the Mother of all creation, her going to this state of grief coupled with fury, of course did not bode well for the creation. All the ferocious manifestations of the Mother Goddess started to appear, threatening destruction of everything. There was an outcry of panic and alarm amongst all living creatures in the universe. The lesser Gods went to Lord Brahma and prayed for his protection.

Lord Brahma came to Mount Kailash and pleaded with the Mother Goddess and Lord Shiv to somehow placate the extreme situation, and avoid the destruction of the universe. Goddess Parvati agreed, on the condition that the child that had been beheaded be brought back to life. In the exchange that occurred between the child and Lord Shiv, the impact of the trishul was such that the head of the child could not be seen anywhere. Lord Shiv then instructed all his adherent disciples to go and search for a head for this child. The instruction was to bring back the head of the first dead entity they encountered, who would be lying prone with its head towards the north. In this search, the first such being encountered was an elephant. And so, its head was brought back to the abode. Lord Shiva placed this head of the elephant on the headless body of the boy child, and breathed life force once again into him. The child was revived and the imminent destruction of the universe was avoided.

The child was named Ganesh, combining two words – gan + eesh. Gan is the word for the closest adherent disciples of Lord Shiv, and eesh is the word that indicates primary or the first lead – meaning the first and the most preferred and honoured amongst all the adherent disciples of the Lord. He is also known by the name Gajaanan – one with the face like an elephant (gaj – elephant; aanan – face). In reality, he is known by numerous names, all depicting certain special characteristics of his persona.

There are other events that followed, by which Ganesh also got the boon and blessing that he would be the first one to be worshipped in any auspicious activity of the humans and of the demigods.

For today’s celebration, we present her a song from the 1979 film ‘Marte Dam Tak’. The song is created by Ravindra Jain who is both the writer and the composer for this song. The singing voices are those of Shabbir Kumar, Suresh Wadkar, Hemlata and Mahendra Kapoor. On screen, the song is performed by Govinda, Shakti Kapoor, Farah Naaz and Rajkumar, while we also see Om Puri in the picturization. The lyrics of this song have been sent in by our dear Prakashchandra ji.

Once again, with plentiful greetings to all friends and readers on this occasion – may all the happinesses come your way, and all the obstacles in your paths be removed by the blessings of Lord Ganesh – the first amongst all the followers of Lord Shiv.

Ganpati Baapa Moryaa. . .

Ganpati Bappa Morya!! One more Ganesh festival in the life of this blog. We have been having songs from bollywood movies posted in this blog every year. So why should this year be any different. And have we run out of Ganesh festival songs? Answer is no. As long as bollywood is there we will have some hero do the Ganesh aarti and set up a Ganesh pandal—atleast in their films.
