i don't believe in ganpati's miracle as i made a wish to him and also prayed a lot to him and also told him i need this and only this but he gave it to another guy and spoiled my life for ever i accept i might have made many mistakes in my life but i also said sorry to him but he totally destroyed my life

ganesha says no one comeback empty handed from his temple but i say i have returned back empty handed from his temple i was praying to him since i was in 8th class but finally he broke my heart as in my life non of my wish is fullfilled but i told him atleast fullfill my this wish
