Many Bangkok taxi drivers worship the elephant-headed Hindu deity, Ganesha. For Thai cabbys, he represents success and good fortune. But, Ganesha is also a patron of the Arts, and is believed to bestow intellect and wisdom upon his followers. If you're in need of creative ideas or brain power, you should have a chat with Ganesha. This god is also believed to be a remover of obstacles, and if you were a cabby in this city of traffic jams and road construction, you'd be praying to Ganesha, too.
