Ganesh Chathurthi is fast approaching and with it starts groups of people visiting homes to collect money to put up public pandal’s. Yesterday one such group consisting on only teenage boys came knocking on my door.
I am a bit sceptical of giving money to kids, but after asking them of the various details gave them a crisp note. To fill the receipt they asked me my name. I didn’t want to give my name out to these kids, so asked they to give it without a name written.
Caught off guard they asked once again if I didn’t want the name to written. I gave a affirmative nod. They quickly filled the receipt and handed it to me and moved over to the next house.
That is when I looked at the receipt and noticed it had a name written over it in neat Kannada. Can you guess what was written on it?
The name was ಗಣಪತಿ, well it is good to know I look like Ganapathi. :-)
