HISTORY OF GANESH CHATURTHI
The ten-day long Hindu festival is celebrated to honour the younger son of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, the elephant-headed God, Ganesha's birthday. While some historians are of the opinion that the earliest instances of Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations can be traced back to the times when Satavahana, Rashtrakuta and Chalukya dynasties ruled, that is from 271 BC to 1190 AD, historical records suggest that Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations were initiated by Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaja, to promote culture and nationalism. It was continued during the rule of Peshwas, for whom, Lord Ganesh was a family deity.
