Gampi Bappa Morya

The Ganesh Festival has always been my THE MOST favorite festive of all times. You can check my English composition note books, essays, etc. Every single place under the title 'My favorite Festival', you'll only find Ganesh Festival.

The two days when Bappa would be in our house were days of sheer bliss. Just the atmosphere, the tempo, and the vibrations that filled my house is inexplicable.

So was the weird feeling in my gutt on the day of the visarjan...

Its been 11 years now since Bappa last stepped in our home. However the feeling is still the same as the festive comes and goes every year. However over the years I have delved more into the meaning of Bappa's agman and visarjan.

The more you know about it, the more you realize how much we are unaware... The more you understand the meaning, the more you realize how meaningless the extravagant celebrations have become.

Now when I see thousands and thousands of people standing in the line, and crores and crores of rupees spent, I feel really disheartened. Arey toh Bappa aahe, Lalbaug cha aso ki tumchya gharatlya devaratla, tumhala titkach prem karnar titkach aashirwad denar!

I feel such huge amount of time, energy, and money could be better spent by helping the needy. That would be the real Darshan of Bappa than his mere matichi murti...

Enough said. I love going to places jithe Bappa virajto. But having said that I would love to make Bappa happier by accomplishing what he made me to accomplish, for doing what he stands symbolic of...

So in the name of my Most Favorite Festival... Gampi Bappa Morya!!!
