Sanskar Sanskruti Sadbhavana Mahila Bachat Gat helped for eco-friendly immersion for Ganesh Idols at Pavana river Chinchwad gaon.
Every year I am so sad to see hundreds of Ganesh idols lying in river water and I have to really step upon to do immersion of my Ganesh, however this year I was really happy to use the facility for Ganesh immersion to get satisfaction of not stepping onto previously immersed idols as well as helping to avoid river pollution.
The Maharashtra pollution control board is also taking efforts to educate people to use eco-friendly Ganesh idols (news reference – DNA 5th Sept 11)
So my request also to all either to go for complete eco-friendly idols with use of natural colours, so that they dissolve in water, but if you are not able to get such idol & bought POP (plaster of paris) idols then use such facility to avoid river water pollution, since POP do not dissolve for months & the chemical colours used to paint idol will cause water pollution.
Happy Ganesh festival to all.
