Snow Ganpati idol cools up Mumbaikars on Ganeshotsav

With eco-friendly Ganpati idols making a trend, a Ganapati idol made of snow has emerged as a major attraction in Mumbai during the Ganeshotsava celebration.

A theme based entertainment space, Snow World has a different idea to contribute for the cause of Eco-friendly Ganesha by making a Ganpati idol of snow.

They are organising this different kind of Ganeshotsava since last five years.

Snow World Manager Paramjeet Singh said that they celebrate each and every festivity in a unique way and this snow Ganesha is also different.

It is just to contribute to the spirit of Mumbai in addition to giving them a feel of Switzerland or Kashmir, added Paramjeet.

Sculptor of the snow idol Sushant Dandwate said that it is a cent percent Snow Ganesha in which 300 kilograms snow is used. It took 15 days for him and his team to make this idol, he added.

Ganeshotsav is a much-celebrated event in Mumbai and Maharashtra and since past few years, there is much focus on eco-friendly Ganpati idol during ten-day festivities.

People are supporting the cause of eco-friendly Ganesha idols made of soil instead of one made of plaster of Paris and also opting for degradable elements for the decoration of their idols.
