First Post



As Lord Ganesha is the patron deity of my family, this is a traditional verse of praise & call for blessings.

वक्रतुण्ड महाकाय सूर्यकोटि समप्रभ
निर्विघ्नं कुरु मे देव सर्वकार्येषु सर्वदा

 Lord with curved trunk,

One with huge body,

one with the radiance of crore suns -

Please make all my actions

free from troubles.
