Few gods in our pantheon move as adroitly with the times as Ganesha. In the year of the lord 2008, with the Olympic Games in Beijing now firmly behind humankind, Buddhinath doesn’t blink an eyelid while rubbing shoulders with India’s first and only individual gold medalist, Abhinav Bindra, at a stall selling idols on R.V. Road in Bangalore on Sunday.

Gods accept everyone. He blesses everyone. Provided one believes in the philosophy- KarmaNyevaadhikaarastu maa phaleshu kadaachana…He values sincerity, honesty, and total surrender.
Your statement is too good to be true. May be God is very partial to you because of your sincertity.So you mean to state that close to 750 million Indian’s below poverty line are not sincere.
Religion is a profit making machinery used by Sadhus,Sants,Mulllah’s and Pope to spread ignorance.
Largest industry in the world.
Even if you have to get into Tirupathi for executive darshan. You pay a lot more money. There are folks who carry out 15 year advance booking by shelling a ransom which a poor man cannot afford.
Poor man is not sincere man.
ayyo! churumuri. isn’t ganesha too sanskritized for your taste? some days ago you were telling us he is too elitist and all? enaaythu? 11 day visarjane evidence-alli theory karagi neeraagoytha paapa? pollution bere.
Bindra would be a cooler god if they took off his blue cap.
TM, if you want to see God you need not go to Tirupati or Kashi or Kanyakumari. Never think by taking or making yaatras one can see god. Sometime one may become disillusioned by such yaatras. Even if you donot go to a temple/mosque/ church no body will accuse you. Sincerity in what one believes , helping others these things matter more than anything else. Whether a mulla/priest/swami teaches this or not it is immaterial. Learning by experience wil be great help to society. It is the imagination of the idol-maker that has worked wonders. Art has evolved and developed like this only. There is no need for God ….
