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”.

Feeling Happy – My Interview got published

Feeling Happy – My Interview got published

Happy that my interview got published in Kumudam Sneihidhi – Loved to see this.

English Translation of the interview: “Like many women, even I entered kitchen only after my marriage. Since my hubby was interested in trying recipes he sees in magazines, books or TV Shows, during our early days of marriage, we used to be in the kitchen trying many new recipes. As she hails from tuticorin, we could see the slang while we were interviewing her. Post marriage she got settled in Bangalore.
Slowly she learnt and mastered in cooking variety of recipes and then started a blog. In her blog, one could see baking, North Indian dishes and not only that, there are loads of Non veg Recipes from Tuticorin, which is spicy and mouthwatering. Apart from this we could see Cookeries shows, review, etc. She was emotional while she mentioned about the whole credit goes to my blogging to bring me to this level, where I managed to take cooking classes for the kids.”
