Ganesha’s elephant-head story

  1. Every child’s friend Ganesha was himself a normal boy long-long years back. But due to a small severe incident, his head was cut and to compensate the loss, an elephant’s head was placed in place of his real head. 
  2. One day, when Devi Parvati was taking bath, she asked her son Ganesha, to stand on the door of the room and guard the door.
  3. She asked him not to let anyone come inside the room. Ganesha followed his mother’s instructions religiously. Soon after, Lord Shiva came there looking for his wife.
  4. Following his mother’s command, Ganesha did not let his father enter the room. This made Lord Shiva angry and there started a fierce fight between the two.
  5. The battle ended when Lord Shiva used his weapon of destruction, ‘Trishul’ to cut off the head of Ganesha.
  6. When Devi Parvati came out hearing the shriek of Ganesha, the sight of beheaded Ganesha lying on the ground left her aghast. She asked Lord Shiva to bring Ganesha back to life.
  7. Lord Shiva had to succumb to Devi Parvati’s request and had to bring Ganesha back to life. In order to do so, he transplanted the head of an elephant on Ganesha’s body.
  8. At that instance, Devi Parvati among other Gods and Goddesses bestowed Ganesha with divine powers. He was also accorded a status as one of the chief God’s in Hindu religion.
