This wooden statue of Lord Ganesha, obviously a member of the orchestra, is the master-drummer and the leader of the group. He is playing on a pair of drums, one male and the other female, India's most traditional drum-form, one roaring like clouds travelling horizontally from one end to the other and the other shaping the sound into various notes rising to zenithal heights. Amidst a large number of Hindu gods and goddesses Indian tradition vests with only four gods, namely, Shiva, Vishnu, Ganesha and Kali, the capacity to dance and drum, or play on other musical instruments. Shiva danced and played on his 'damaru', but only for destruction and dissolution. Vishnu as Vamana danced for eliminating evil and as Krishna for subduing Kaliya. He played on his flute for infatuating 'gopis' and, of course, the entire cosmos along them, for their participation in his great cosmic act using thus the 'ephemeral' for the transcendental. Kali danced on corpses to destroy and for producing awe and horror.

Lord Ganesha has been conceived in tradition quite differently and not only as musician - the dancer and the drummer, but also as the pioneer scribe who transcribed Brahma's Vedas, the first sportsman, teacher and Brahmana. As dancer he danced to all moods and in all modes, with slow pace and violently but not for violence as violence was never the part of the auspicious Lord. He danced for auspices and to delight, pleasing all and injuring none, in devotion as well to his devotees. He played on all instruments - all kinds of drums, lyres and flutes. The versatile Ganesha is believed to have been the first to compose sound to various 'ragas' and other musical discipline, writing the ever first treatise on music and the earliest linguistics specifying sound as vowels and consonants and other linguistic formations.

It is for such reasons that Lord Ganesha has in people's mind thousands of forms representing him in as many moods and aspects. He carries with him a battle-axe but his face rarely carries on it a wrathful demeanour. In folk tradition he has been widely depicted in gentle moods and as engaged in aesthetic and intellectual pursuits - dancing, drumming, reciting the poetry of the Ramayana, reading out Vedas or other holy texts, sporting or performing a ritual.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.
