Now the third and final part of the Ganesha Series. I know I am a month late..but I believe Better late than never. So here we go.
The Eco Friendly Ganpatis Of Mumbai..through the lenses of my friend Paras.
Made from bananas (Shivneri Mitra Mandal, Gograsswadi, Dombivli)
Made from crushed paper (Gograsswadi Ganeshotsav Mandal, Dombivli)
Made from various oil seeds (Tulsi Building Sarvajanik Shree Ganeshotsav Mandal, Khetwadi)
Made from clay (Kumbharwadyacha Eco Friendly Bappa - 2nd Kumbharwada)
Made from Paper Pulp (Tejookaya Park Mitra Mandal - Matunga E)
Girgaoncha Girijatmaj of Kudaldeshkar Gaud Brahman Nivas Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav is made from fiber.
The idol was made by famous sculptor Mr. Vjay Khatu in 2010. They are the 1st S.G.M. to do away with the visarjan of POP idol and their idol is stored permanently. Every year the idol has a visarjan procession till Girgaon Chowpatty from where it is brought back to the mandal and kept safely in a small pandal for daily worship.
Thank You Paras, for these wonderful posts. Keep Rocking and keep Clicking. :)
