Being a Bappa fan, Shilpa Shetty and husband Raj Kundra welcomed Lord Ganesha at their residence like every year. As Ganesha completed his stay and bid adieu to them today, a number of relatives and friends came over to Shilpa's house to seek blessings from him before his departure. Dia Mirza being one of them, dropped by to take Lord Ganesha's darshan and the actress in an awe of Shilpa Shetty Kundra and her family as they opted for an eco-friendly way of celebrating the festival.

Dia being an environment lover herself, believes in going ecological wherever possible. Be it promoting sustainable fashion or environment-friendly methods of celebrating festivity, Dia follows the same as she preaches. The actress took to her Instagram handle and praised Shilpa Shetty for the same. hank you @theshilpashetty for setting an example again this year, with your beautiful Green Ganesha! The care, love and wisdom with which you celebrate #GaneshChaturti always makes our Darshan so beautiful #GanpatiBappaMorya", she shared.

Painting themselves in the colour of festivity, the two actresses looked divine in yellow colour. Dia too, brought home a clay-made Bappa Morya and celebrated the festival with glee. She shared a picture of the same on her Instagram handle, throwing light upon the importance of going eco-friendly.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Ganpati Bappa Morya! Traditionally we made clay idols and then immersed them in water to denote the Birth Cycle of Lord Ganesha/Ganpati who was created from Clay/Earth. Visarjan in its own way talks about nature's life cycle and while it should be one of the most Eco friendly events in India, it has become something else all together. Clay Handmade Idols have been replaced with Plaster of Paris and Plastic. Natural brown colour of clay is replaced by toxic paints to make idols shiny and sparkly. Size plays a big role on asserting importance or power of the celebration. “Mine is bigger than yours syndrome!” And then there are those awful unnatural plastic/thermocole decorations! All this is immersed in our seas/rivers/ponds/lakes without caring about the consequences. The consequences are dangerous, a complete contamination of our waters, soil and food chain. Surely Ganpati Bappa would never want to be responsible for harming that what he was born from? This Ganpati Visarjan, take this as an opportunity to understand the meaning of a birth cycle, go minimal, natural and sustainable #BeatPlasticPollution #SayNoToSingleUsePlastic #GreenGanesha #EcoCelebrations #EarthFriendlyFestivals #GanpatiBappaMorya @earthlingfirst @greenmomsindia @moefccgoi @narendramodi @unenvironment @undpinindia @treeganesha @bigfmindia @bigfmrani
