Bringing home an eco-friendly Ganesha

The Ganesha idol made out of clay

Vinayakachavithi (festival for lord Ganesha) is celebrated annually through schools, however RDF differs by ensuring the principles of conservation and preservation are followed even in cultural festivities. The idol of Ganesha was built by the students from clay taken from the local pond. We replace the usual plastic sheets used to cover idols, with naturally available leaves from trees. When the festivities are over the idol is immersed in the same pond from which the clay was sourced, thereby ensuring zero pollution. Along with this, students and parents are a part of the daily festivities by offering prayers on a daily basis. This instills in them traditions and culture that are a part of their heritage.
