Ganesh chaturthi is here and it is a time to thank God for everything. It is also the time for Modak and laddoo. It also reminds us of our stay in Mumbai.We fondly remember standing in the queues of Lalbaug cha Raja and various pandals to thank God for what we have today. These festivals bring up the spirit of Mumbai.As we miss the festival back home,we decided to bring Bappa home. We always wanted to make an Eco friendly Ganpati whenever we decided to do the sthapna.
How to make Ganesh murti?
Ganapati idol is made with plaster of paris as they are more stable and can be made big in size.
However,these idols are non-biodegradable.They float in water for a long time when immersed on the last day of the festival.
Our idol should be eco-friendly and ensure it does no harm to environment. After all,God is kind enough to give us this beautiful world and its high time we take care of it.Homemade dough for Ganpati Idol is easy to make.You can also use this dough to make different structures as a play activity for toddlers.(Ensure parent supervision always with play dough).
