Mumbai artist create Tridev Ganpati made from chocolate, kheer and Haldi milk this year
Use her three inventions in one form to create Tridev Ganpati on Mount Kailash watching over the world
Ganeshotsav is known for its splendor as well as the perfect platform to spread the social messages to the devotees. Every year the artists with their unique ideas put their heart in designing the idols carrying a special message for the people.
One such artist from Gujarat now based in Mumbai, this year too continues her passion to create new Ganesha idols. This year Bappa has come to her place as Tridev, in the form of all her three inventions, Chocolate Ganpati, Kheer Ganpati and Haridra/Haldi milk Ganpati. Her latest innovation (made with Haldi, milk powder, misri and immunity booster spices, when you immerse it in milk, it turns into Haldi milk prasad) sitting on the chocolate and caramel Kailash mountain.
"The entire structure is edible, weighs around 80kg and 2ft x 3ft in size. It took me 48 hours to create the entire structure. This year marks the 11th year of my Chocolate Ganpati invention. Also I have come up with a new innovation this year, Haridra/ Haldi milk Ganpati, made with Haldi, milk powder, misri and immunity booster spices, when you immerse it in milk, it turns into Haldi milk prasad. As always Visarjan will be in milk, and everything will be distributed as prasad to the underprivileged kids, " Said Rintu Rathod.
She further added that, As the world is reeling through bad times, Haridra/ Haldi milk Ganpati is to save us from the pandemic with a promise of health as it's full of immunity booster spices, Divine white Kheer Ganpati is for universal peace. We know the situation in many parts of the world right now and Chocolate Ganpati signifies the earth and has arrived to heal the earth. It also gives us a message to take care of our earth.
She created all three Ganpati with different techniques. "I always create all my idols single handedly. Toughest part was the innovation part, correcting the formula for each of my creations. Also I have to be extremely careful about the hygiene part. I strictly follow all international hygiene standards, which makes the process quite tough, " Said Rathod.
After visarjan they go to some orphanages in Mumbai and also distribute the prasad to the kids living on the streets.
