User:Eshwar.om, please respect WP:IQUEUE ("Articles may get ugly and difficult to read if there are too many images crammed onto a page with relatively little text. They may even overlap.") and STOP adding images that disturb the layout. Due to image crowding in the first section (addition of File:WLA lacma Tamil Nadu Ganesha.jpg), the first two images in Iconography are being displaced.--RedtigerxyzTalk 08:19, 17 July 2014 (UTC) User:Redtigerxyz, WP:IQUEUE(If a contributor believes such a queued image to be essential to the article, despite the lack of text, he or she may decide to put it back in. However, he or she should not simply revert the article to its previous state, but make an attempt to re-size the images ).File:WLA lacma Tamil Nadu Ganesha.jpgnot disturb the layout too.Eshwar.omTalk tome 08:39, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
User:Eshwar.om, can you please justify why this is essential to the article? Now, we have four images from Tamil side, a very loop-sided image selection.
Celebrations of Ganesh by the Tamil community in Paris
Ganesha, Karpaka Vinayakar Temple, 400 CE, Tamil Nadu.
Please dont say like tamil side ,they are from differnt time scale.Even Ancient combodia and Thailand,java,Indonesia, srilanga also Tamil influenced.but they are not same country. Please dont say again like 'Tamil side'.UP,MP are different states.but hindi is common mother tongue for both.so the files from various dynasty and also various place .they spoken tamil language means what we do?we will not neglate that?am i correct?if all hindu people speaking same language then will we neglate all files.no right?!in other hand i am not telling all hindu people knows tamil.but the files from different place and diffent period.telungana and Andra shares same language and also same state before but now separate like tamilnadu and kerala.so simply saying tamilside which is not acceptable.Eshwar.omTalk tome 10:39, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Chaple In England Turns Ganshesha into a christian Gargoyle and hangs it up next to a rat with a ear on its back
Could we add a new section here in which list the missuse and the tainting of the artistic expression of the character Ganesha for the purposes of others which cause offense to hindus and bring awarness to this on wiki?
So far i found the following...
1.Ganesha Gargoyle in a chaple in England 2.Australia beer label ganesha 3.Urban Outfitters Ganesh socks
The sentences about Ganesha's name in Thai and Sinhalese are unsourced and not in the original FA version. The Burmese name is sourced but was also not in the original FA. I think the worship of Ganesha in Southeast Asia is important to know but the names in their languages is undue and excessive per WP:Summary Style. For comparison Jesus is widely worshipped in many countries and has different names in many languages but not all of them are stated on the main article. Maybe Names of Ganesha can be created for detail. I personally think the Sanskrit, Buddhist Tantric and Tamil names is enough, just like in the FA. Gizza(t)(c) 01:03, 2 December 2014 (UTC)
While this article on Ganesh was well researched and footnoted it seemed so focused on etymology it failed to miss in the first 5 paragraphs that Ganesh is widely known as the God of Wisdom,Learning, Success, and yes, The Remover Of Obstacles ( and the faith that we can remove obstacles). I am no expert but an editor doesn't have to be. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 17:14, 11 December 2014 (UTC)
Hi, I suggest to include this image, which is of much better quality than File:ShriMayureshwar Morgaon.jpg. I can't find the name of the other characters. Any idea? Yann (talk) 12:37, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
Mayureshwar has much more encyclopaedic value as the icon of one of the most famous Ganesha temples, which is the centre of his Ganapatya sect. --RedtigerxyzTalk 17:58, 27 December 2014 (UTC)
