Ganesh Chaturthi Special Children’s Story: Adriti and Her Gonu Dada

‘Adriti and Her Gonu Dada’ is a story about little Adriti’s encounter with Lord Ganesha, whom she lovingly calls ‘Gonu Dada’. Let me tell you a little about Adriti; she just turned five, loves art and craft and is interested in Indian Mythology. So this book is an easy way of telling her some stories about Lord Ganesha from our rich Mythology. 

About the Story

Adriti befriends Lord Ganesha and gets to know about him through conversations while gobbling laddoos. Well, laddoos are not only favourite of Lord Ganesha but she too loves them in real life. Through this story she gets to know how wise, smart, loving and dedicated He is. She also gets to know why he has an elephant-head and what his body parts represent. I am sure, like their bonding in the story, in real life too, she will place complete trust in him. Lord Ganesha will bless her with prosperity, grace, true wisdom and knowledge and shower her with happiness and love.

The End

In the end of the book, Lord Ganesha, i.e., little Adriti’s Gonu da, promises to send her the selfie he clicked with her. He did send it from Kailash which I turned into a birthday card wishing her prosperity, knowledge and wisdom. She informed me that she loved it.

Book Review

Since Adriti is fond of art and craft she values these handmade books and loves the hand written and hand drawn pages. She enjoys the personal touch in the stories as they make her feels special. It is a great achievement to find that Adriti, a little kid, recognizes the care, effort and time woven together to create this book. The five- year- old Adriti adores Lord Ganesha and is interested in Indian Mythology and so making this book was all the more tough. Thanks to her mom for trusting me.

    This is simply great work! Sadly, our mythology and it’s importance are eventually vanishing away from people’s conscious minds nowadays..
    This is indeed an amazing effort to grow our kids’ interest in mythological stories.. this is the way they’ll absorb the essence of our traditions..❤️
    Keep going dear!
