Finding Ganesh a series that collectively shapes a contemporary fairytale, touching on cultural gaps of globalized society. The story is set in India on the last day of Ganesh Chaturthi festival, and reflects on the recent gang rapes, lack of cultural empathy/understanding as well as the Gulabi Gang (female activists in Uttar Pradesh).
