Celebrate big and guilt-free with these simple tips
Every year, the elephant-headed Lord Ganesha comes with a bagful of blessings for everyone. People across India look forward to the grand celebration that lasts for almost a fortnight in some places. At HomeLane this year, we thought of taking the eco-friendly route this Ganesh Chaturthi and guiding to keeping your homes and the environment safe and clean. Check out some of the simplest ways to bring bappa to your home and not play a spoil sport to Mother Nature:
The most readily available raw material in the market. Bring in wet clay and transform it into a beautiful looking Lord Ganesha. You could also paint it later once the idol is set. This will not just make your idol look more unique than others but will not contaminate the water when immersed.
After decking up the wall, it’s now time to create a nice entrance for the Lord. Ditch the fancy and expensive pillars and go ahead with green bamboo sticks this year. They are readily available and will ensure your entrance looks traditional and authentic.
Look in your children’s room and you might find charts and wrapping papers; pieces of which are often left unused. Create a beautiful collage out of this and put it in the backdrop of the room. This will add colour to your room and highlight the idol as well.
While lights have their own illumination, nothing can beat the light accentuated by the colourful candles. Though you might have to change it often, the aura created by lighting candles is worth the effort.
Here are five simple ways you can go eco-friendly while being easy on your pocket. Have any more interesting options? Share it with us by commenting below. Happy Ganesh Chaturthi!
