Hartalika Teej, Goddess Parvati and Ganesh Chaturthi with Bappa

The Ministry of Women and Child Development launched Poshan Maah 2019 to coincide with Hartalika Teej and Ganesh Chaturthi, both epitomizing devotion and love of a husband, wife and their children 

At 4.57pm India Standard Time on September 2, 2019, millions of women in India and Nepal

completed their two-day fast-without-water in devotion, love for their husbands -- equal halves in the modern-day world -- and for the continuation of their happy, married life.

This devotion celebrated as Hartalika Teej (as Gowri Habba in southern states Karnataka, Tamilnadu,  Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala) and directly inspired by Goddess Parvati, ushers in another biggest occasion, Ganesh Chaturthi.

It was, agreeably, the most opportune moment for the Ministry of Women and Child Development,
Government of India (@MinistryWCD) to launch Poshan Maah 2019. This campaign with a tagline 'Sahi Poshan, Desh Roshan' (Correct nutrition, healthy nation) is initially aimed to run from September 1 to 30.

Developed through the National Nutrition Misson, this drive will target reducing stunting, undernutrition, anemia (among young children, women, and adolescent girls) and reduce low birth weight.

As you can see, just as Parvati's love and care for her child Ganesha was undiminished, so too all mothers in India are expected to ensure their children are raised healthy. To make this drive successful, 13 lakh Anganwadi workers have spread nationwide to guide, educate and help women provide their kids with healthy nutrition.

You could see these Anganwadi workers as messengers of Lord Ganesha, who is known for his wisdom, knowledge, help in removing of obstacles, protection, good fortune and success. So, as you celebrate Ganpati Bappa Morya, you'd surely want to wish malnourished children throughout India to get a new beginning through this holistic nourishment programme initiated by the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.

As you invite Lord Ganesha in your homes, visit pandals near you chanting "Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha" and apart from wishing Poshan Maah 2019 success, you'd also want to recall Bappa's teachings.

The most important among the teachings your friends, parents would often like to narrate is how Ganesha impressed his father Lord Shiva, mother Goddess Parvati and saint Narada as he circled his father and mother at Mount Kailash to win the contest with his brother and win a mango.

Although Ganesh shared the mango with his parents, brother, offering Narada the seed, the moral of this story, not to be forgotten is: While his brother took few days traveling around the universe to fulfill the contest's requirement, Ganesha did it faster by going around his father and mother whom he considered the universe.

By doing so, he signified that you must not look outside of God to learn about the universe and life.
