The birth anniversary of Ganapati Maharaj is celebrated on the Chaturthi of Shukla Paksha in the month of Bhadrapada. This time this date is falling on 22 August. Ganapati Maharaj is the first to be revered among all the gods. He is considered as the god of wisdom in the scriptures. His body is also different than other gods. While the body of his body is of human, the head is of elephant. But every part of their body provides us with some form of learning.
