LA PROCESSION DANS LE QUARTIER DE LA CHAPELLE

En tête de la procession, ont défilé des joueurs de flûte, de nageshvaram et de tambour, des danseurs et des danseuses portant sur leurs épaules le grand arceau de plumes de paon (kavadi) et sur leurs têtes des pots de terre cuite dans lesquels du camphre a été brûlé.

Ganesha — the elephant-deity riding a mouse — has become one of the commonest mnemonics for anything associated with Hinduism. This not only suggests the importance of Ganesha, but also shows how popular and pervasive this deity is in the minds of the masses.

The Lord of Success

The son of Shiva and Parvati, Ganesha has an elephantine countenance with a curved trunk and big ears, and a huge pot-bellied body of a human being. He is the Lord of success and destroyer of evils and obstacles. He is also worshipped as the god of education, knowledge, wisdom and wealth. In fact, Ganesha is one of the five prime Hindu deities (Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva and Durga being the other four) whose idolatry is glorified as the panchayatana puja.
