Gleefully presiding over the drama is Ganesh--divine, -elephant-headed scribe of the Mahabharata, India's great epic. The family may think they have arranged the wedding for their own selfish ends, but according to Ganesh it is he who is directing events--in a bid to save Leela, his beloved heroine, from Vyasa.
