Latest from ganeshotsav
Over 39,000 idol immersions took place on the final day of Ganeshotsav in Mumbai, with a total of over 205,000 immersions over the ten-day festival. Natural water bodies were still the preferred choice for immersions, but artificial ponds are becoming more popular. The BMC collected 500 metric tonnes of flower remains, which will be converted into compost for use in the gardens department. In G North ward, the remains are made into incense sticks. The NGO Shiva Sneha Samajik Pratistik has developed a process to turn the flowers into incense sticks, with 70% of the flower remains usable.
