Who is Ganesha:
Ganesha is the elephant-headed Hindu god of beginnings, who is traditionally worshipped before any major enterprise and is the patron of intellectuals, bankers, scribes, and authors. Ganesha is potbellied and generally depicted as holding in his hand a few round Indian sweets, of which he is inordinately fond. He has a large Indian bandicoot rat, which symbolizes Ganesha’s ability to overcome anything to get what he wants. Ganesha is a remover of obstacles.
