A delightful photographic essay w/text of the very democratic Lord Ganesha who appears everywhere in India - his whimsical apperance charms everyone with his elephant head, chubbly-bellied man's body, many arms; riding a mouse and girdled by a serpent. He is the pitcher of Prosperity, Remover of Obstacles, Grantor of Boons, Guaranator of Success and Lord of Beginnings. He represents hope, optimism, good will and healthy self indugence. The brightly colorful photos show the Lord Ganesha in all his incarnations.
