GGIANS VOW TO CELEBRATE ECO FRIENDLY GANPATI FESTIVAL

 

‘Vakra tunda maha kaya suryakoti samapraba, nirvignam kurame deva sarava karyashu sarvada…”

 

In the midst of all this fervor surrounding the arrival of Ganesha, GG International School, Pune thought in terms of the environment conservation as we have vowed to go green this Ganpati festival and follow the ancient traditions that prescribed that people make their own idols, worship them and then immerse in water.

          

A coordinated effort was made by the Sakaal group and the school to spread awareness of celebrating an eco-friendly Ganpati. To facilitate this concept  and for saving the environment,a workshop was held for the students, teachers and parents to make the Ganpati idols with natural clay(shaadu mud).The workshop began with highlighting the practices during the festival that are detrimental to the environment.

 

Clay kits were provided and the Ganesha idols were made along with step-by-step guidance provided by the instructor. A number of creative idols were made and left for drying. These idols will be painted by students after the idols dry up and welcome Bappa on Gansh Chaturthi with non toxic colours.   

 

The parents were highly enthusiastic and appreciative of the workshop and saluted the gesture of GGIS in spreading awareness towards the conservation of nature.

 

 

The workshop highlighted that after paying obeisance to the Lord, he is to be submerged in indoor water container instead of Rivers or Seas to avoid water pollution. This water to be later used to water plants that explains the main motto – ‘What Nature has given to us, we are giving it back to the Nature ‘
