The correct answer to this question is C, Ganesh. He is also known as Ganesha. One of the most worshipped Gods, he is the son of Shiva and Parvati. Ganesh is the god of good luck, wisdom, and success. Per Hindu tradition, if one worships Ganesh, the difficulties and obstacles of their life will be removed.

Many also worship him before starting something new, to prevent any difficulties or obstacles from occuring. This can include starting a family or buying a new house. Ganesh appears in many temples through carvings and statues, and there are many temples dedicated to him.

C is the correct answer. Ganesh or Ganesha is the Hindu god that has a head of an elephant who is known to be the Lord of the Beginnings and Remover of Obstacles. Ganesh was created by his mother, Parvati after she felt lonely when Shiva left her for a while.

Ganesh was brought to life and Parvati became happy again until Shiva came back and chopped the head of Ganesh after refusing him to enter into his own house. Parvati got angry and asked him to resurrect their son. He promised to replace the head with the first being he will first to come across with. Shiva then saw an elephant and used its head to revive Ganesh. Ganesh became the symbol of protection and power from any obstacles that one may encounter.
