    This year mass celebrations have been banned to prevent the spread of Corona pandemic. Government has issued guidelines for the people to celebrate Ganesh Utsav only at home rather than in public and pandals.

    In such a situation the concept of seed Ganesha is gaining popularity among people of Vadodara city. The idea was implemented by an alumunus of Fine Arts who is distributing the Seed Ganeshas to the people from various areas of the city. The aim is to celebrate the festival in a eco friendly way.

    “The idols are made from red clay which protect the environment from water pollution. Secondly the seeds provided with the idols will turn into plants later which gives feeling of Lord Ganesha is still with the devotees at their homes. We give seeds of Tulsi, tomato and marigold with the idols to the people,” said Kunal Krishnan.

    He further added that, the idols are of three sizes of 8, 9 and 12 inches made of red clay and dissolve in water in 30 to 35 minutes. Normally it takes four to five hours to prepare a idol and they give seeds along with them to mark it as eco friendly celebration.

    People purchase the idols also appreciate the idea and said it gives them the feeing of Lord Ganpati is still with them in the form of plant after the immersion at home.
