Mysore/Mysuru: Devotees of Ganesha, who are also environmentally conscious, face a dilemma: the idols are usually made of Plaster of Paris (PoP) and decorated with non-biodegradable paint. This year, Mysureans have an option that isn’t just environment friendly but also to bring more greenery to life.
Mysuru Ganesha Utsava Samiti in association with Karnataka State Pollution Control Board is organising a free workshop of making clay seed Ganesha idols on Aug.28 (Sunday) from 3 pm onwards at Madhava Krupa on JLB Road, Mysuru.
Necessary items required to make the idol is provided free of cost by the organisers. The objective behind this event is to spread awareness about the adverse effects of using PoP and synthetic colour Ganesha idols.
“We believe it’s important to instil the idea of going green to the present generation and talk to them about combining the passion for planting trees and making eco-friendly idols at home. Through this event we are encouraging general public towards an eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi to promote the idea of ecological balance and to reduce pollution,” stated the press release from Mysuru Ganesha Utsava Samiti.
