Eco friendly Ganesha made by school going children
Eco friendly Ganesha idols are being made by school children.
Eco friendly Ganesha idols made by school children are a source of delight for everyone.
Ganesh Chaturthi will be celebrated on 25th August countrywide. The celebrations will continue until 5th September. People are making arrangements to welcome Lord Ganesha in their homes, in colonies, in lanes …just everywhere. Lord Ganesha is worshipped first at the beginning of any ceremony or ritual that takes place in Hindu homes.
Since environment protection is every citizen’s duty, clay idols of Lord Ganesha are being made which are eco friendly. Until a few years back, idols made of plaster of paris were worshipped. These idols disturbed the ecological balance and polluted water to a great extent especially during the time of immersion (visarjan) in water. Going ahead with a vow to protect the environment, clay idols are being made which do not play havoc with environment. School children are in the process of carrying this further by making clay idols and gifting them away.
These children from Pioneer Public School are expert enough and make an idol in 10 to 15 minutes. Today between 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. these children will demonstrate the making of idols in attractive ways. Devotees are now buying clay idols only. Preparations for Ganesh Chaturthi are on at Bohra Ganesh ji temple, Pracheen Paala Ganesh ji, Jaada Ganesh ji, Mava Ganesh ji, Dudhiya Ganesh ji, Sarv Siddhi Vinayak and other Ganesha temples.
It has been declared that anyone who makes Ganesha idols from any material other than clay will be strictly dealt with. Their stuff will be seized. There will be volunteers on all the paandals where the celebrations will be carried out to maintain peace and harmony.
Police have asked all the event organisers to make sure that clay Ganesha idols are used and not any other material. Organisers have been asked to make sure that no one uses idols made of POP.
