Legends behind the celebration of Ganesh Chaturthi is that after Lord Shiva, Father of Shree Ganesha angrily killed him and beheaded him after a fight. When the Mother Parvati saw her son’s body beheaded, she asked Shiva to anyhow bring her son back, otherwise, she will destroy the world. Lord Shiva also realized his mistake and blessed the body by placing an elephant’s head instead of a human one.
After this, the boy was named Ganesha, whom God Shiva blessed to be the first and most loved God among all the Hindu Gods. Lord Ganesha is first worshipped before the start of every new work and people take his blessings. The highly adored God represents wisdom, wealth and happiness.
