Immersion of a very sweet, but ecologically 'toxic' Ganesha idol

Yesterday was the immersion of Ganesha idols and one hopes that people paid attention to the request made by officials to immerse ONLY MUD idols in Municipal waterways, wells and tanks. Terracotta idols (commonly on sale) have a large chemical constituent and are ecologically dangerous to immerse in water bodies (including wells).

To get an idea of the environmental Impact of Ganesh Chaturthi and what we can do to make such happy festivals ecologically safe please check out this link:
