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”.

 

Open Letter to My Grandfather – 2017

Open Letter to My Grandfather – 2017

Miss the hands that holds me,

Miss the feet that walked with me,

Miss the hugs that boosts load of energy,

Miss the hands that feed me,

Miss the love that was very pure,

Miss the songs that you sing for me,

Miss the story that gives confidence to me

I DON’T MISS YOU BUT I MISS ME.

Open letter to my Grandfather

14 years of this journey is being very challenging, with so many changes in me, finally I miss me. At times, I feel happy for the way of thorns, sands, glass pieces that I have crossed, looking forward for the beautiful greenery and flowers on the way, but it looks like a water in the dessert or remains temporary. Finally got to know that “Life is a Battlefield” and glad that you taught me the survival. But this year with a heavy heart, there are many rumblings in my heart with the question, “Why all these happened again?”, hopefully looking forward for the answers and the time to heal everything and wish my garden bloom with beautiful flowers again. The only thing I wish this year was like giving a tight hug to you, lying on your shoulder, broke out my pains as tears, with a good sleep on your lap, so that all my pains, sorrow and worries vanishes in a second. I am sure it would never happen, because there is no one to replace you.

Happy for giving a beautiful, lovely, secured and happiest childhood which no one would had in their lifetime and still staying with me even when everyone say you are no more.
