Analyses the process by which Ganapati evolved into a multifaceted personality acquiring, over the centuries, several distinct roles and attributes. These, according to the author were largely determined by the changing needs and perceptions of various castes and religious groups in specific geographical areas. Based primarily on actual field work, this brings out newer dimensions to Ganapati's role and rituals associated with him.
