Say ‘Ganpati Bappa Morya,Ya Varshi Eco-Visarjan Ghya!’
Yesterday many of us welcome Lord Ganesha in our homes as every year. For the days that He stays with us, we observe strict rules and make sure that our revered guest gets all our attention, best of food and a pure and clean environment.
Then comes the day of Visarjan! Every small bit of detail that we take care of and every way we protect the Ganesha idol…all of it just disappears in the noise and water pollution that we cause.
When we chant – Ganpati Bappa Morya, Pudhchya Varshi Lavkar Ya, do you think Lord Ganesha would really want to come back to a world so polluted and a visarjan so chaotic?
That is the bad part. The good part is that we can change it, starting from this year.
The first step in this direction which probably you have taken would be to choose an eco-friendly Ganesha idol. . The idols made from clay, stone, metal or bio-degradable materials like coconut can be immersed in a bucket of water at home. This way, we don’t pollute the water or create traffic, thus restricting noise and air pollution.
HOW TO GIVE GANESHA AN ECO-FRIENDLY VISARJAN
-Do not immerse any plastic waste along with your Ganesha Idol made from clay and natural colors.
-Opt for a symbolic immersion.
-Avoid using thermocol and plastic decorations.
-Alternatively sprinkle water on the Ganesha Idol instead of immersing it in the main water bodies of the city.
-You can also immerse the Ganesha Idol in a bucket of water and then use it to water the plants.
-If you want a cost-effective as well as eco-friendly option, get yourself a Ganesha Idol made from stone or metal which you can re-use every year.
DISPOSAL OF NIRMALYA
Along with the idol, there are several accessories used during the worship which are collectively referred to as ‘nirmalya’. These include flowers, fruits, coconuts, cloth, incense, camphor etc. instead of immersing along with the idols ,collect all day nirmalaya and put it Kalash arranged by Nagpur Municipal Corporation near Artificial Lakes in many Area.
You can create your own compost using this nirmalaya by taking following Steps
Step 1 : Create a min 3*3 ft Pit in open ground/Area near you ,Make it free from plastic and other waste.
Step 2 : If Possible Put a layer of mixture of Cattle Urine(Gomutra) along with Cattle Waste (Gomay/Gobar) on the floor of this Pit .this helps to speed up the compost procedure.
Step3 : Now Clean Nirmalya ,make it free from any kind of non Biodegradable Waste like plastic,glitters etc . Free flowers and leaf from threads , now put this cleaned niramalaya in the pit and sprinkle some water .
keep the pit close for Almost 90 days to get a fresh batch bio-fertilizer made by you for your Garden.
Create a world where Lord Ganesha will be pleased to visit
over and over again.
Lets strive together to celebrate an eco-friendly Ganesh Utsav
Ganpati Bappa Morya!
