Papa can?t we keep him at home for ever ?
?No sweetheart, it is tradition; we have to follow?.replied my wife.
But mama , so many people are keeping him for 10 days in their home.
Not everybody dear, only in maharastra & andhrapradesh they do it.But as we are doing puja at home , we have to do the BISARJAN.
I could see little drop of tear in the eyes of my daughter , as we are about to immerse the idol of LORD GANESHA in the sea beach.with thousands of other people .I was trying to remember my childhood memory?.Exactly the same way I used to cry & force my parents not to immerse GANESH in water.My father used to console me & used to give me chocolate .Suddenly I remembered one thing which my father had given me? .
I took up my daughter on to my lap & whispered that I had a surprise for her in house which will make her happy. She looked at me & asked ?what?s that surprise??
First let us do the immersion & see yourself at home& you will love it.?. I told.
We came back home.i opened my cupboard & tookout one small? CHINA CLAY GANESH IDOL which was given to me by my father years back & I had kept it as my lucky charm. I told her ?now you can keep it & this need not be immersed in water;Have? all the good luck & wishes of ganesh?.My daughter was dancing with joy.I knew I need not worry till next year GANESH PUJA..
