Story behind Ganesh Chaturthi 2020
According to mythology, Ganesha was created by Goddess Parvati using sandalwood paste, which he used for bathing. Being the god of power, he developed Ganesha with such force that even the gods could not fight him. During such a war between the gods, Lord Shiva accidentally beheaded Ganesha, inciting Parvati's wrath. To satisfy his wife, Lord Shiva and other gods put the head of an infant elephant on the trunk of Ganesha. This is why Lord Ganesha was created with the head of an elephant. On this auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi, Lord Shiva announced that Ganesha would be the only deity to be worshiped before any other god. He will always be worshiped as a symbol of wisdom, intelligence and power.

Different tributes are paid to Prabhu, including the traditional "modak", a conical candy made of coconut and jaggery. Other items such as coconut, jaggery, durva (a special type of three-blade herb) and red flowers are also used for worship.

Traditionally, 21 modaks and 21 durvas are required for worship.

On the 11th day, the idols are immersed in water and said goodbye. This "immersion" takes place before the funeral procession of divinity with coconuts and flowers; It is usually associated with long processions and a huge crowd.

In Andhra Pradesh, turmeric and plaster of Paris, along with the common clay idols of Ganesha, are also used to make the idols, which are then worshiped. Special sweet dishes are made for worship. Kudumu is the localized version of "Modak"; Other items include panakam (a spicy drink with cardamom), vadappu (soaked lentils) and shalvidi (sweet rice preparation).
