Ganesh Festival is the most popular festival of Maharashtra. It is a festival which is celebrated with full enthusiasm as everyone brings Lord Ganesha at their homes. It is a great fun to have Lord at our home. Consecration of Lord Ganpati, Worship, Aarti, recitation of melodious hymns, etc everything is delightful. Finally when the day of immersion arrives it fills our hearts with sadness. Finally we bid adieu to the Lord by praying to Him return again next year and the earliest.
But in our happiness we are oblivious of the harm that we cause to the environment. We unintentionally pollute and add more dirt to our surroundings.
HARMFULNESS OF PLASTER OF PARIS (POP):
Most of the Ganesha Idols these days are made up of Plaster Of Paris (POP). The Colours used for painting these idols contain poisonous chemical substances. Also these idols take a long time to get dissolved in water. During this process water gets contaminated due to destructive gases and toxins which are released from POP. Often on the next day of immersion we can see the pieces of idols of the Lord lying unattended on the seashore! This POP problem has one alternative which is of use of pipe clay for idol preparation. However in reality it is difficult to prepare these pipe clay idols, moreover they are very heavy in weight.
BENEFITS OF ECO-FRIENDLY IDOLS:
Hence as a permanent solution to this problem, Shree Aniruddha Aadesh Pathak started making eco-friendly Ganesh idols from kneaded paper pulp collected under the Raddi Yojana (Waste Paper Project) featured under the 13 Points Plan formulated himself by Sadguru Shree Aniruddha Bapu. This was first started in 2003. In first year itself the Foundation prepared 300 eco-friendly idols. Since then every year the count of these idols has been increasing. In year 2010 the Foundation successfully prepared 5500 Ganesha idols of kneaded paper pulp. The colours used for making these idols are strictly prepared from non-toxic materials.
