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
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
