"Vakratunda Mahakaya Suryakoti Samaprabha
Nirvighnam Kuru Me Deva Sarvakaryeshhu Sarvada"

Ganesha Habba 2015 A decade of celebrating Ganesha Chaturthi by Irish Kannadigara Sangha (IKS) was organised in a spectacular style on 20th September 2015 at the Phibblestown community centre, Dublin, Ireland. The very professional organisation of the event, equally reflected the enormous experience, enthusiasm and energy of the members of the IKS.
The commitment of the organising committee is highly appreciated and a big thank you to all involved in this selfless voluntary community work. The event began with the members of the Kannadigara Sangha gathering at the venue to seek blessing from Lord Ganesha for obstacles free year ahead. Over 150 kannadigas and their non-kannadiga friends had come over to participate in the event, which began with decorating the beautiful Ganesha Idol and performing traditional rituals and pooja to the Ganesha Idol.
This was followed by distribution of over 21 varieties of prasadas and traditional style lunch on banana leaf. I am sure all the IKS members will cherish this for a long time. The support of all the members of the IKS also deserves appreciation and acknowledgement as they arrived in traditional costumes with lot of enthusiasm. During the event, the tiny tots and younger members of the IKS were also equally kept busy and engaged, as activities and short educational videos on Ganesha were organised for them. Ganesha Habba 2015The offering of tambula (betal leaf, fruit with ganesha idol as gift) to IKS members at conclusion of the function was just icing on the cake. The event was finally wrapped by visarjan (send off into the water) of the Ganesha Idol.

Thank you again to all the IKS members and especially to all of you involved in organising this excellently coordinated event in bringing a traditional Karnataka atmosphere to Dublin in celebrating the 10th IKS Ganesha Habba, what a spectacular decade it has been!!
