Ganpati Bappa !!!

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi to everyone ... May Ganesha fill your house with love and smiles and his grace be always there on you. I took some pics after decorating for this day and then did puja with my hubby. I love the purple flowers that are fresh from our garden and the whole orange purple look that came out with all that I had here. This Ganesha statue was given to me by my mom and is very special to me ... and the purple mala is something I made in the beading class ... We are going to the puja in evening at my friend Madhavi's house .. I am so glad that she is doing it and I get to be a part of it ... do let me know what you did .....I can't wait to hear from everyone how did they celebrate this day ...

Translation of The national anthem- Jana Gana Mana In English

Thou are the ruler of the minds of all people, dispenser of India's destiny.

The name rouses the hearts of Punjab, Sind, Gujurat and Maratha. Of the Dravid and Orissa and Bengal.

It Echoes in the hills of Vindhyas and Himalayas, mingles in the music of Yamuna and Ganga and is chanted by the waves of the Indian Sea.

They pray for your blessing and sing thy praise. The salvation of all peaople is thy hand, thou dispenser of India's destiny. Victory, Victory, Victory to thee.
