Festivals are a very important part of our culture and every occasion is celebrated in its own unique, special way. One of the most important festivals of our country is Ganesh Chaturthi which is celebrated in honour of Lord Ganesha’s birth. There are many different versions when it comes to Ganesha's birth. While some believe that he was brought into the world by Goddess Parvati, others believe that he was a creation of his parents Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

Every year, the 10 day long festival begins by bringing a clay idol of Ganesha home. For the entire occasion, at least one member of the family stays with the idol to give him company and special treats such as modaks and laddus are prepared. On the last day, devotees carry the idol to a nearby water body to immerse it. It is believed that the idol dissolves in water and Lord Ganesha returns home to his parents Shiva and Parvati at Mount Kailash.

Among others, Bollywood celebrities also celebrate the festival by bringing idols of Ganesha home. Today, Bollywood personalities such as Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan, Anil Kapoor, Dia Mirza along with many more took to their social media handles to wish fans on this auspicious day with special photos and videos.

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
