Yesterday was an auspicious day for Hindus. This was the day when Shree Mahaa Vishnu incarnated as Varaaha.
Today is also an auspicious day for Hindus as this is Ganesh Chathurthi, the birth anniversary of Ganesha. (We observe this day as the death anniversary of my father. He passed away on 5 September 1997 which was teachers' day in India according to the English calender and Ganesh Chathurthi according to Sanskrit calender).
