On September 5, AST India rang in Ganesh Chaturthi with joyful office
Ganesh Chaturthi is a Hindu festival celebrating Ganesha as the god of new
beginnings and the remover of obstacles, as well as the god of wisdom and
intelligence, and is observed throughout India. Ganesha is a symbol of formless divinity. The festival is marked with the installation
of Ganesha clay idols privately in homes, or publicly on elaborate pandals
(temporary stages). Observations include chanting of Vedic hymns and Hindu
texts, and brata (fasting). Traditionally,
the 10-day festival ends when the idol is carried in a public procession, then
immersed in a nearby body of water.
AST India’s office celebrations included our employees dressed in traditional
attire, festive decorations throughout the office, and a grand feast!
