A few pictures from the sets of a Thai TV show called The War Of Flowers are doing rounds of Instagram. They have the cast and crew praying to Lord Ganesha. That obviously made us quite interested in the TV show and also this practice of Thailand. We did some digging and found out that the country worships Lord Ganesha as Phra Phikanet or Phra Phikanesuan...the God of success and fortune. He is also worshipped as the one who removes obstacles or as is known in India, Vighnaharta. Makers of ‘Mumbai Saga’ Release Upbeat Track ‘Danka Baja’ with Tribute to Lord Ganesha
According to Wikipedia, many television and film production companies in Thailand have a huge statue of Ganesha in front of their premises. Many TV shows also offer their prayers to Him before filming begins and that's what the crew of The War Of Flowers was doing.
