Festivals in India are generally celebrated with all the frills, and the same is true for Ganesh Chaturthi. Right from handpicking flowers and decking up puja rooms and pandals, tomaking modaks filled with coconut and jaggery, people tend to immerse themselves in a host of activities. However, often, during the course of the celebration, people don’t realise the extent of harm they might be causing to the environment. Many of the Ganesha idols that are sold in the market today are made of plastic, thermocol, and other non-boidegradable
materials, which when immersed in water bodies have a detrimental effect on both the plant and animal life.
Hence, this time we decided to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi with all the pomp and ceremony, but without hurting the planet, without going out in the crowd and by saving money. We have organized a live session of Mr.Rajesh Ghodke on how to make an Eco friendly Ganesha Idol, and how to use natural colours .He conducted a 2 hours live session for the students of std 1 to 10. We are overwhelmed by the participation and response by the students and parents.
