6 Values Children can Learn From Lord Ganesha

With an elephant’s head, a large belly, and four hands, Lord Ganesha appears different from any other deity. He is the perennial child, who is the seeker of knowledge and wisdom, and the epitome of devotion towards his parents. Although this is how Ganesha is often depicted and perceived by us, there are many other values we can learn from him.  1. Be innovative and resourceful: Once Lord Shiva asked Ganesha and his brother Kartikeya to circle the world thrice.

Here are ten parents who crossed that line, and committed an act of filicide. In many of these cases, the perpetrator is clearly guilty. Others are still mixed up in controversy about what really happened.
