Glimpses from 2017 / Rewind of 2017 / Happy New Year 2018 from Madraasi


It’s just few hours more for the clock to tick 12:00 and the rise of the next year 2018. First of all, let me thank everyone my viewers, my followers, my friends, my family, and the most important people my haters, WISH YOU ALL A HAPPY, HEALTHY, PEACEFUL, WEALTHY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2018.

Happy New Year

When everyone has been sharing their resolutions, I would say no to resolutions, as I never plan things, planning gives only flop to me. So anytime and every time, I wish to take what all happens to me in a positive note, If it’s good – happy me and If it’s bad – lesson for me.

Live and Let live,

If you don’t want to live at least let others live

Worry only for yourself,

If can’t best to move out rather pouring negativity

Be Happy and spread happiness

If not stay calm in a corner

Talk Less – work more

If not best to sleep

Be yourself and not be others,

If can’t …”

Stay Positive, Strong, work hard and Remember the word KARMA

2017 has been more and more successful year to me in blogging (my profession) and personally it has not been neither happy nor bad. On the whole it was too much of hard work, too much of patience, too much of stabilization to my mind and soul, in short, I have learnt to overcome things. I am proud to say that I have left all my negativity, fear and now it’s only brave, courage and ready to face anything that comes to me with positivity.

Happy New Year 2018, madraasi new year 2018, new year 2018 greeting, new year, new year 2018

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.

CLICK HERE for our Vinayagar Chaturthi celebrations at 2017 and CLICK HERE for Vinayagar Chaturthi recipes.

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”.
