Visarjan at our home with Our Eco-friendly Ganesha – Ganesh Chaturthi – 2017

Visarjan at our home with Our Eco-friendly Ganesha – Ganesh Chaturthi – 2017

Visarjan is one of the most important part of Vinayagar Chaturthi / Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations. Visarjan means “Immersing the idol of Lord Ganesh in any water body, usually people use to immerse in lake, river, sea”. After the celebrations people carry Ganesha Idol along the streets by dancing towards the water body to immerse them.

But now as per the environmental security, most of us get Eco-friendly Ganesh idols. These Eco-friendly idols are made completely with clay and designed with beautiful color papers, kundan stones and Jhamkis.

It was from last year I got eco-friendly Ganesha Idol and after our celebrations are over, we perform puja, and for Visarjan – since we have a small Ganesha idol (1 ½ feet), we used to immerse Ganesha idol in a bucket full of water, and wait for a day until it dissolves in water.

Once it’s done, I separate the colour papers, kundan stones, jhamkis from the water. Transfer only the water to other bucket, then spread out the clay over a big sheet. I mix these clay with the soil in a proportion of 1:5, later fill those in the empty flower pots and plant herbs, table roses or sow seeds. Also pour the collected water to other flower pots and plants at our home.

I believe my Ganesha stays with me and shower his blessings through out the year. Also Happy that my kids come to know what Ganesh Chaturthi is, how to celebrate it Eco-friendly. Let’s save our mother earth by teaching our kids (future generation) the term “ECO-FRIENDLY”.

MONEY

“MONEY” – A small word with just five letters in it, holding a single meaning but very powerful than anything in the world.  The only thing  loved by all, wanted by many and hated by none. It is constant and is ever present in everyones life. In earlier days, I heard that  LOVE changes ones life(personality, attitude) but now the word is love is replaced by MONEY. I have come across many of the debates, arguments stating that “Is money a blessing or curse?”.  I don’t say that money is everything or nothing, but money is something which makes us understands everything in critical times. Everyone has their own view on money. When it comes to a beggar, he say its priceless. When it comes to a millionare(who never found true love), he says its useless. Really I feel disgust when I see people behind money. So whatever may be if its over the limit(except love), its nothing.

“ The holy passion of any relationship is so sweet and steady and loyal and enduring in nature that it will last through a whole lifetime, if not coming to money” .
