    Hi
    I am so happy that i get all the informations regarding hindu religion. I have a doubt. I heard that in North India when people are in critical situation, they keep ganapathy in water. The statue will be completely in water till their wish get done. Is it a correct process. Please advise. Awaiting for a reply.

    Thanks
    Seema
