Love it. How about a guest appearance from Quetzlcoatl. Or perhaps Bertrand Russel’s celestial teapot.
i love the treasure trail on ganesh! nice addition. most statues are missing that.
Forewarned is forearmed, and four is an odd number of arms to have… Four is an even number. the only number that’s both even & odd is infinity, therefore: Ganesh has an infinite number of arms…
You have defamed the Lord Ganesha who is prayed by Billions oh Hindus worldwide. You do not have any right to defame God of Hindus. I strongly protest against this & I want you to remove this picture from this website.
Watch out, author. Those elephants never forget.
It always amazes me. There are actually people who think — what? that there’s some elephant walking around with lots of arms who can do magical things. Like literally.
A magical man strains credulity, but an elephant? Breaks it.
I am an athiest myself but i like to read about hindu philosophy,, I find it sort of poetic..
Some sources [i believe vedic] allege that Ganapati is the ruler of all Gan’s or sets, groupings etc. As in he is the creator of all sets [the mathematical ones] and groups and assembleges..
Modern Hindus of course worship him because he is supposed to make you rich.
I’ve also heard that he’s helpful with computers. I might add him as a wallpaper even though I’m not Hindu.
As far as Suyog’s comment goes, I didn’t know that Hindus got offended that easily. No one has yet complained about Jesus’s comment that the “walking on water” thing was made up.
Old cartoon, but saw it late … great.
Suyog, get a heart … this is just a cartoon and so is ganesh … you also need to visit temples in India to see worse mockery of the god you so cherish.
Guys, you are taking this comic too seriously. Especially Suyog.
As a Hindu 2.0 lite, I’ve always interpreted Hinduism as something symbolic, not…literal. So Daniel, “like literally”, most Hindus don’t really believe there is actual actual half-elephant half-man performing miracles. That sounded kind of ignorant, hence why I refrain from talking about religions that I’m not familiar with.
In order to parody the subject, most of the time it ends up having to be exaggerated anyway, so you can’t take the message of this comic “literally” either.
Good job, as always though. This is almost as good as ‘Life of Brian’.
grt one…i am greater believer in religion and mythology, certainly more entertaining than movies…and i am a hindu, so lemme tell the ones who dont know how ganesh ended up with a trunk…ganesh’s mother (the goddess Parvati) was taking a bath so she told him to not let anyone enter, his father (the god Shiva, yeah the destroyer) tried to enter and Ganesh stopped him so he cut off his son’s head…and then when Parvati threw a major tantrum so shiva replanted his son’s head with an elephant…isnt mythology amazing funny…imagine the technology which existed before we mortals came into this existential dimension…
so lets hail to religion and mythology for providing comic relief in times of stress…cheers to blasphemy…to the people who believe in their religion with their eyes shut…people, its your problem, dont dump it on the rest of the world…
Sort of like how Jerry’s dentist converted to Judaism to be able to tell Jewish jokes, *everyone* is entitled to tell Hindu jokes.
Apparently, as per Hindu doctrine, we are all born as Hindu and no matter what god is prayed to (or where atheist wishes go), it’s always a Hindu god that answers that “prayer”.
And let me tell you, when I first heard that, a Shiva ran down my spine!
