Happy Ganesh Chaturthi
The epidemic has taught us that, more than anything else, we require the blessing of a healthy environment in order to grow. As health worries grow and the COVID-19 outbreak is kept under control, the country prepares to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi, one of its most anticipated holidays. However, having learned from our horrific experiences during the pandemic, this is a good time to enjoy our festivals, worship our god, and contribute to the environment in whatever way we can.
Colorful, musical, and dancing festivals also leave behind severe environmental risks that require days to clear up. We've put together a list of methods to celebrate Ganesh Chaturthi in a green way, so that humans and the environment can both be safe. Here's the rundown:
The massive Ganesha idols that are immersed in surrounding water bodies clog them and release toxins into the water. Clay idols, on the other hand, dissolve very instantly when submerged in water. They are biodegradable and have no negative effects on the health of water bodies.
Opt for small and simple Ganesha idol
Despite the fact that the size of the idols symbolises the festival's vastness, this year it is preferable to go with simple, modest idols. Massive crowds may not be allowed to assemble at any given moment under COVID-19 regulations. It's tough to handle and immerse large idols in water. At home, little idols can be immersed in a tub of water.
Tree Ganesha idols
Dattadri Kothur, a Mumbai-based artist, pioneered this eco-friendly concept by introducing tree Ganesha idols to Ganesh Chaturthi. Natural colours, fertilisers, red soil, and a seed are used to create these idols. As a result, the idol should not be immersed in water once the festival is over. It can be kept in a small pot and watered once a day instead. Your Ganesha will remain in your home and offer you greater fortune.
A DIY Ganesha idol's purpose is to make it more environmentally friendly. Making a dough using clay, organic glue, and paper pieces and shaping it into the shape of the idol is the simplest method. It can be painted with organic paint later on. You can also include your children in this enjoyable pastime.
Perhaps now is the time to join our Gods in worshipping nature. These eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi ideas will guarantee that pandemic protocols are followed, that fun is had, and that the environment's health is not jeopardised. Have a wonderful Ganesh Chaturthi celebration!
