Opt for Eco-Friendly Ganesha , Save Environment

Ganesh Chaturthi Festival

Widespread campaigns are already on for an eco-friendly Ganesh Chaturthi festival but still a large section of the society are unaware of the pollution and environmental damage caused by Plaster of Paris idols and chemical paints. Some large Ganesha Pandal committees, to attract maximum crowd conveniently forget the environmental impact caused by the idols.

In 2009, date of Ganesh Chaturthi festival is August 23.

The main pollution is caused by the Plaster of Paris Ganesh idols and the chemical paints used in them.
• Plaster of Paris (POP) is not a naturally occurring material and contains gypsum, sulphur, phosphorus and magnesium. The idols take several months to dissolve in water and in the process poison the waters of lake, ponds, rives and seas.

• The chemical paints used to decorate the Ganesh idol contain mercury, lead, cadmium and carbon and this increases the acidity and heavy metal content in the water.

• Several accessories used during the Ganesh Puja like Thermocole, plastic flowers, cloth, incense, camphor and numerous other materials are dumped carelessly adding more strain to the already polluted rivers and lakes.

• Careless dumping of Ganesh idols in waterbodies blocks the natural flow of water. This results in stagnation and breeding of mosquitoes and other harmful pests

• The polluted water causes several diseases including skin diseases.

• The pollution from Ganesh Chaturthi idols also damages the ecosystem, kills fishes and water plants.

• In many areas, the same polluted water gets pumped into homes.


• Use eco-friendly clay idols painted with natural colors.

• Use permanent idols made of stone and perform a symbolic immersion and reuse the idol each year.

On eve of 15th August , India Independence Day

What Is 15th August For ??

आज़ादी अबी अधूरी है !
अखंड भारत अबी बाखी है !!

I do not know what 15th August is for

I do not know what Independence is for

During midnight sleep of civilization

My future came under the sword of vivisection


I believed the leaders, who promised me of a free nation

But these Mahatma’s kneeled and okayed the partition


Hindu’s were hounded out and made to run

While Mahatma’s were busy basking under new sun


The storm of insanity turned into a rage of flood

With exodus, borders looked red with Hindu’s blood


But this night one leaders future at Red-Fort started to bloom

Everyone else looked low , their hearts filled with gloom


I do not know what 15th August is for

I do not know what Independence is for

Saturday, August 1, 2009 advertisement insults Lord Vishnu

Hindus protest against

for insulting Hindu God Lord Vishnu

Again the stupid advertisement of is on on popular TV channels. It was stopped last time and invisible for about year. It describes meaning of HARI as "Hitler" and all other letters as abuse. God name HARI is honourable to all of us and this is abusing same .

An advertisement by, job seeker's portal has used the name 'Hari Sadu' and deformed 'Hari' with bad words. The advertisement shows a person spelling out the name 'H-A-R-I' on the phone as: 'H' for Hitler, 'A' for Arrogant, 'R' for Rascal, 'I' for Idiot.

Appeal to all Hindus

Hari is one of the name of 'Lord Vishnu'. Lord Vishnu is the one who loves his devotees very much. Gods like Lord Sreeram & Lord Krushna are incarnations of Lord Vishnu. He is the god who gives stability to whole Universe. So how we Hindus can tolerate such defamation of Lord Vishnu? Oh Hindus, protest against & force them to stop such horrible denigration of Lord Vishnu. We must also force them to apologise all Hindus.

From: mrunal ghate <>Date: Jun 14, 2007 12:18 AMSubject: About 'Hari Sadu' advertisement To: Cc: Hindu Janajagruti Samiti <>
Dear Sir/ Madam,
I have been watching this advertisement where you have used the name 'Hari Sadu' and deformed 'Hari' with bad words to show that how your job site pours confidence in people who otherwise are submissive by giving them jobs.
You might be aware of the fact that in Hindu religion the name 'Hari' is one of the many names of 'Lord Sree Vishnu' and is taken with lot of faith and respect. You have hurt the religious sentiments of crores of Hindus all over the world by deforming it with bad words . Would you have dared to deform the name say for example 'Mohamed Khan' or 'Mary Fernandez'? No. You dared to do this insult of Hindu God because Hindus are passive.
I strongly protest against this heinous act of yours of using bad words to describe the letters in the name of our Hindu God and ask you to withdraw this advertise from media and apologise publicly to all the Hindus for hurting our religious feelings.
Waiting for your public apology and withdrawal of the advertisement,
First and foremost a Hindu,

Mrs. Mrunal S. Nanivadekar
