“Vakratunda Mahakaya Suryakoti Samaprabha
Nirvighnam Kurume Deva Sarva kaaryeshu Sarvada.”
Ganesh Chaturthi celebrates the birth of Lord Ganesh, the god of wisdom and success. It is celebrated with huge pomp and show in the state of Maharashtra. IIM Nagpur plans to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi on 2nd September. Lord Ganesh’s image is a composite of elephant and man with each part having its own significance. The elephant head represents great strength. The human form is a symbol of wisdom and intelligence. Lord Ganesha’s mouse represents presence of mind. The four arms of Lord Ganesha depict the four directions of space.
