Every year during the period of the 10-day celebrations
Every year during the period of the 10-day celebrations, an idol of Lord Ganesha is brought into every household and worshiped with great fervor and joy. Nowadays people were giving more priority to eco-friendly idols due to the harmful effects of the non-biodegradable plaster of Paris ones, which were used to prepare idols earlier. It is always great when celebrations are done more consciously and with a sense of compassion towards our environment and fellow beings. After all, that’s what Lord Ganesha represents, the amalgamation of nature and human beings giving and taking from each other, and living unity and peace.
