Gajanan is serving in the Ganapati Kulam for two phases. He is focusing on two projects. One is to assist with the migration of media content to our new web site which is still under construction. This phase he has been working on slideshows. Click here for a sneak peak Note: not all the navigation links are functional yet. The new site will dramatically improve access and exposure to our right collection of digital assets.
His other project is to process scans of an unusual book which has the stories of over 300 temples in India, each of which is accompanied by a piece of black and white line art. He is cropping the scans to extract the art which was done by famed artist S. Rajam. This collection might otherwise be lost but will now live on in future publications and web apps. Two examples below.
These drawings, simple as they are, have a compelling quality.

Jai Ganesa!! What a special and most interesting project to be have an opportunity to be a part of Gajanan. You look so happy and seem to really be enjoying this experience. We are smiling too. Aum Shanti
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
