Ganesh Statue                      

Hi, I am Layla .My grandma and dad’s culture is Indian. So my family bought a statue of Ganesh. It’s an Indian god. People in India watch shows and pray to Indian gods. It is a part of Indian religion and Ganesh has many names. The Ganesh is part elephant part human. My dad is named after one of Ganesh’s many names. He is one of the great gods of India. His father is lord Shiva and mother is Parvarti and together they live together on a mountain in India.

My grandma loves me and sometimes allows me to watch the shows. She calls me a lot too. Her family and lots of Indians believe in Ganesh as part of their tradition .I have to say I half believe in Ganesh too. The statue in our house is very beautiful. It is an important part of our tradition. So I remember Ganesh as an important part of culture and life. It is an Indian part added to my life!!!!!                 


Thank you for reading about my culture!
