LORD OF THE BEINGS
By Neel Anil Panicker
“Hey Prashant, who has your cricket team lifted on their shoulders?
Well, that’s God Ganesha.
“God? This guy with an elephant’s head and a lone tusk??? I thought Sachin was the ‘God of Cricket?”
Steve, look at his name: Ganesha. Gana means beings, both living and non living. Ganesha controls I, you, every single person, thing, or element in the entire cosmos. This makes him the Lord of all beings. This also makes him powerful, far powerful than Sachin. In fact he’s more powerful than all other five million Gods and Goddesses, and hence we worship him before all else.
“I am so intrigued. He looks so cute, too. Does this dude have parents?”
Well, he’s son of Shiva and Parvati; no he was created by Shiva alone; or by Parvati; or even by both in consultation with Brahma.
“Now, now, wait a minute…It’s a bit confusing. Who are these characters. How could a guy be be born of err created by so many people?”
Well, this is India. Here, anything and everything is possible.
