Amrita Rao roots for eco-mindful Ganesh Chaturthi celebration
Actress Amrita Rao is content that her local community Ganesh pandal committee has taken a timely determination of postponing the yearly Ganesh Chaturthi celebration from August 21 this calendar year to February 2021.
Citing the example of the GSB Sarvajanik Ganeshotsava Samiti that organises a big pandal celebration at the Wadala Ram Mandir, the actress explained: “I have been visiting the pandal because my childhood and my Ganesh Chaturthi celebration is incomplete without this ‘darshan’, even so I am genuinely impressed and grateful to the G.S.B Samiti that without the need of contemplating about donations or any other component, they have postponed their pandal celebration this August in finest desire of the public’s well being. I hope other pandal committees consider inspiration and do the exact same.”
Her community Ganesh Samiti idol, although huge in dimensions, is a entirely eco-welcoming idol. Also, biodegradable containers are employed for ‘prasadam’ and use of plastic is prevented.
“Character experienced to literally lock humans down in their houses to regain its harmony. The rivers and lakes have self purified on their own from our harmful remedy. COVID-19 has been a big wake-up signal from the surroundings, and as accountable citizens we have to try to hold our setting pure and toxic free,” stated Amrita.
Final year, she experienced introduced her individual pre-recognition marketing campaign “Eco Bappa Morya” as a result of a advertising film, whereby the actress had interacted with sculptors, oceanography scientist, beach cleaning activist, and chef Vikas Khanna to advertise many alternatives of eco-helpful idols together with chocolate Ganesha. She also stressed on the simple fact that “the size of our devotion doesn’t rely on the sizing of the idol we pray to”.
