Bollywood celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi filling our social media feeds are full of colorful and festive photos!

Every year, this season brings out the festive spirit as everyone including Bollywood celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi. While the auspicious festival is meant to bring out the feeling of community, it also becomes a cause for concern for the impact the indulgent nature of the celebrations can have on nature, especially the ocean. Many steps, drives and awareness campaigns are also implemented to stop, reduce and undo the terrible effects the careless acts of humans are causing.

However, many of Lord Ganesha’s devotees, as well as Bollywood celebs, celebrate the occasion responsibly by using eco-friendly ways and methods. They keep the festive vibe and celebrations on without hurting the environment. Everyone has their own ways of celebrating it and every year Bollywood celebrates Ganesh Chaturthi with their own traditions and so do Television stars and celebrities!

Ganesh Chaturthi is one of my favourite festivals and I really missed celebrating it at home last year… Was part of the Aarti via FaceTime! I'm so glad to be back this year, healthier and stronger, celebrating with my family. I truly believe if there’s faith, it reflects more on the inside…in the dialogue between you and your God… so don't lose that essence. Once again, we’ve taken the route of bringing an eco-friendly Ganesha & we’ll also immerse the Lord in our home ?? May this Ganesh Chaturthi bring health, happiness and new beginnings to everyone, and may we all have the strength to overcome the obstacles that come our way. सर्वांना गणेश चतुर्थीच्या शुभेच्छा. ? गणपती बाप्पा मोरया

Ganpati Bappa Morya! Traditionally we made clay idols and then immersed them in water to denote the Birth Cycle of Lord Ganesha/Ganpati who was created from Clay/Earth. Visarjan in its own way talks about nature's life cycle and while it should be one of the most Eco friendly events in India, it has become something else all together. Clay Handmade Idols have been replaced with Plaster of Paris and Plastic. Natural brown colour of clay is replaced by toxic paints to make idols shiny and sparkly. Size plays a big role on asserting importance or power of the celebration. “Mine is bigger than yours syndrome!” And then there are those awful unnatural plastic/thermocole decorations! All this is immersed in our seas/rivers/ponds/lakes without caring about the consequences. The consequences are dangerous, a complete contamination of our waters, soil and food chain. Surely Ganpati Bappa would never want to be responsible for harming that what he was born from? This Ganpati Visarjan, take this as an opportunity to understand the meaning of a birth cycle, go minimal, natural and sustainable ??? #BeatPlasticPollution #SayNoToSingleUsePlastic #GreenGanesha #EcoCelebrations #EarthFriendlyFestivals #GanpatiBappaMorya @earthlingfirst @greenmomsindia @moefccgoi @narendramodi @unenvironment @undpinindia @treeganesha @bigfmindia @bigfmrani
