In line with this philosophy, Club Enerji’s students from Chembur Karnataka High School,Mumbai celebrated an eco-friendly Ganesh Utsav at their school premises wherein they organised a ten day exhibition based on green initiatives like saving fuel, using LED lights, switching off electric lamps at night etc. Students created eco-friendly idols and paintings which were displayed at the school for 10 days as part of the exhibition and celebration. The children displayed 175 Ganesh idols and a commendable 520 paintings that included glass and canvas paintings and handicrafts. Students belonging to different communities participated wholeheartedly to create some of the most beautiful idols and paintings.
Bio-degradable materials were used in creating these idols including paper mache, tissues, cloth, wool, wood, coconut shells, cotton, clay, cardboard boxes and mud. The first day commenced with a puja performed by a priest which was attended by the staff, students and the management of Chembur Karnataka High School. Mr. Anand Mahajan, Graphic Designer from Raheja School of Arts and Mr. Sunil Poojari, Fine Artist from J.J. School of Arts were invited as judges to evaluate the spectacular display of talent.
Speaking on this initiative, Anil Sardana, MD and CEO, Tata Power, said, “Ganesh Chaturthi is a very important festival that helps in bringing people together. It is a perfect platform to spread the message of energy and environmental conservation. We are extremely happy that our Club Enerji students from Chembur Karanataka High School celebrated this joyous festival in such a noble manner where they have taken the effort to sensitize the community on going green; while also practicing this value by enjoying this festival in a eco-friendly way.”
On the 10th day of the festive period, the school undertook a rally with lezim accompanied by the school band. Over 250 students joined the procession leading to the idol immersion at a local pond. They carried posters and slogans for sensitization of the local public and to spread awareness about an eco-friendly approach towards this festival. The students have also pledged to visit the pond in the coming week to ensure that it is cleaned up after the festivities.
