Ganesha Chaturthi or Mangalvari Chaturthi happens when Chaturti tithi falls on Mangalvar or Tuesday.
Chaturthi is the fourth day of a fortnight as per traditional Lunar Calendar. Mangalvari Chaturthi in 2015 was on September 1 and today, December 15.
The popular belief is that the prayers offered on this day are highly meritorious and rewarding. Lord Ganesha as the 'path opener', 'bestower of perfection', 'auspiciousness', 'remover of obstacles' and 'master of creativity' holds the highest place in South-East Asian social, cultural, spiritual and religious lives.
Lets celebrate together!!!
