Abstract

Ganesha is one of the most loved Gods of the Hindu culture. The deity has multifarious sides and
has become an icon known by many names. Although a lot has been written on Ganesha, Gita
Mehta goes a step further by describing not only His characteristics but also deep seated
symbolism of his figure as well as harmony of the prevailing contradictions. The world has
modernized, but the faith in the deity has not diminished. On the contrary, it appears to have
become in line with modernity. The conviction has grown and crossed the national boundaries to
enter into the international scene. The present paper attempts to explore the element of
universality in the figure and faith of Ganesha as depicted in Mehta’s book Eternal Ganesha.
