Ganesh Chaturthi is just days away and like every year there are discussions about celebrating the festival popular in several parts of the country in the right spirit. As people are busy preparing majestic idols for the festival, there are people trying to bring awareness about eco-friendly Ganeshas.
Joining them, BJP MP from Bengaluru and the Union Cabinet Minister for Chemicals, Fertilisers and Parliamentary Affairs Ananthkumar urged people to go for an environment friendly Ganesh Chaturthi with Eco-Ganesha.
He shared an image and an article by an NGO highlighting how Lord Ganesha is a god of nature representing natural elements, and mentioned that using artificial and harmful material used for the idol won’t please the god.
His tweet was well received on social media as many going for the same last year were appreciated and even PM Modi urged people to use natural clay idols.
