Ganesha is a very popular god in Hinduism, and is one of the most worshipped. Ganesha is a god of wisdom, success and good luck, in some ways like Lord Buddha is. He is a giver of countless blessings. Ganesha is considered as the one that can remove all obstacles and difficulties, therefore he is worshipped at beginning of new endeavours.

There are many stories of lord Ganesha's birth. The popular version is as follows:

One day, Goddess Parvati was taking a bath at home. She did not want anyone to disturb her. She created a boy with her powers, and told him to guard and not let anyone in. When Lord Shiva came home he wanted to come inside but the boy would not let him. Lord Shiva asked his army to make him go away, but the army failed. Finally, Lord Shiva just cut the boy’s head off. When Parvati heard what had happened she was very upset. She pleaded with Shiva to save him. Lord Shiva replaced the head with that of an elephant, the wisest animal.

Hanuman, the monkey-god, is one of the central characters in the ancient Hindu Epic Ramayana, he is also mentioned in several other texts, such as the Mahabarata and the various Puranas. Hanuman is considered the ideal brahmachari, the one who follows the path of Brahma.
Hanuman is the quintessential yogi having a perfect mastery over his senses, achieved through a disciplined lifestyle tempered by  celibacy and selfless devotion, bhakti, to Lord Rama and Shri Sita. He performs his actions with detachment, acting as an instrument of destiny rather than being impelled by any selfish motive.
