Getting Ready to welcome Ganesha !!!
Rohan Gonde, an alumnus of our Bhavisya-yaan program of VIDYA Mumbai got together with other alumni of the program and procured some clay, seeds of edible and flowering plants and some reference material to demonstrate how to make clay idols. The students were all given their own materials to make a unique Ganesha. The seeds of the flowering plants and edible plants are mixed into the clay that was used to make them. After the festivities end and it is time to bid adieu to the children's favourite deity, the idol is immersed in water briefly and then immediately planted in the school grounds. This will not only serve to beautify the school but also serves to bring all the students for a fun activity that teaches them about the importance of respecting mother nature.
