Pitru paksha has begun from yesterday. Paksha means a fortnight period and Pitru means forefathers. Pitru Paksha begins with Bhādrapada Krishna Prātipada according to the Hindu Lunar calendar. During this fortnight time, Shrāddhas of deceased ancestors and loved ones are supposed to be performed. In today's article, let's discuss the great Hindu tradition of remembering the lost loved ones.

Today is Anantachaturdashi, the day of Visarjan of Lord Ganesha who has been showering the fervor and devotion upon all of us for the last ten days. On Ganesh Chaturthi, the first day of Ganesh Festival, I prayed to Lord Ganesha of Sarsabaug (Pune), to bless me with divine words to write poems. I hadn't planned it. But, the Kripa of Lord Ganesha is so great, I have been able to write a new prayer every day for the past ten days. Thank you Ganapati Bappa, my faith in you is strengthened by your powerful and prevailing blessings.

In the series of Ganesha prayers for every day of Ganesha festival, in today's post, let's worship Lord Ganapati by Jaswand (Hibiscus) flowers and a prayer. Bhagwan Ganesha loves Jaswand flowers and of course our simple prayers. :)

Today's poem is dedicated to Engineering days for Engineer's Day celebrations. While penning down the memories, I felt, this poem has turned my thoughts more as an Engineer than as a poet. Reliving the lasting memories of Engineering and the Institution of Engineers Days.
Circuits, designs, programs,
