Lord Ganapati


Elephantine head
   & human body:
That is our
  LordGanapati !

Created by HIs
  Goddess Mother
He was'nt always this :
   What a bother !

Devi Parvathi
  Goin' in for a bath
Kept lil' Ganapati
  As a door keeper !

Originally shaped
   From Mud
Parvathi into Him breathed
   Flesh'n blood !

Lord Shiva was Mad !
  @ His wife's boudoir
Stood guard a lad
  Technically Shiva was Dad .

O boy you are
  Baaad !!
With a flash of Trident
Lil' head cut-off He had

Parvathy on seein' this
   Fell into a swoon .
Shiva made amends
   Granted a boon !

An elephant head
  Was attached to boy
Life returned : o behold
  A Mother's  joy !

Today's Mumbai
   Worships the Lord
Of wealth'n wisdom
  He is absolute god !

Amalgam of man
   & animal
He seems to human
  Say " love animaks , nature etc.!"

On His immersion
  The streets of Mumbai
Witness dancin' ,frenzy ,celebration
  As Mumbai salutes it's Monarch !

In many a Bollywood script
  Lord Ganapati has had a
Important role dipt'
  In Song & Intrigue !

O Elephant God
Protect both Man
& jumbos , Lord
  Ganapati Bappa Maurya !!!
