A Bond between Generations with The Jai Jais. One from the heart

A Bond between Generations with The Jai Jais. One from the heart

One things that has been absolutely magical and so precious to me has been testimonials of parents that have said how their children have always taken the books to share with their grandparents.  What a perfect way to bridge a generation gap and let those stories live on through generations. One parent told me she had to buy extra sets to keep at each of the grandparents houses!  One of my most cherished moments is when my eldest son sat and did Jai Jai with his great grandfather and they spent time laughing, talking and reading my books.  It was amazing to see a 100 year old great grandfather and his 3 years old great grandchild have something in common, sharing the most treasured times and beloved memories

Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi, is on the 22nd August 2020. In these unprecedented times in the new norm of Covid, the arrival of Lord Ganesh, the “Vighna Harta” (destroyer of obstacles) and the God of New Beginnings will certainly be an event to look forward to. Ganesh Chaturthi is a celebration of the birth of Lord Ganesh that goes on for 10 days.
The main ritual of the festival is bringing the idol of the lord home, making the lord a part of your daily life, only to be sent back to his home on Mount Kailash by immersing him in the water. But how did this festival come to be? And what is the importance of this festival? Also what are the signs and symbolism of Lord Ganesh?
