Green Ganpati for Ganesh Chaturthi
Being the World Water Monitoring Day it becomes more imminent to find ways to increase storage of the drinking water and see to it how well we could manage from water being wasted. Apart from this it becomes predominant to check that water does not get polluted. Year after year Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated with Ganpati idols as a custom of the Hindus in the country. After celebrations the idols are taken out in and immersed, as a part of the ritual. But it has been noted that the idols that were earlier made of mud started transforming into attractive colors by use of toxic chemicals. And the immersion of Ganpati idols only adds to silting.
Water pollution monitoring authorities claim that the toxic chemicals used in decorating idols tend to leach out and pose a threat to water bodies. The studies carried out during in the backdrop of the festivities have revealed that the water quality deteriorates with respect to conductivity, bio-chemical oxygen demand and concentration of heavy metals. This inturn makes the water unfit to drink and also kills the living organisms in the water.
The best way to avoid such hazards is to use idols made from traditional clay instead of baked clay or even made out of Plaster of Paris. The paints used to decorate the idol should also preferably be non-toxic. Lets us all vow today that tomorrow we will worship a green Eco-friendly Ganpati and do our duty to nature.
