Q.

Now Ganapaty Festival is fast approaching. Tonnes and tonnes of garlands, flowers, leaves, gulal and rangoli will be used and thrown into water and dust, In making Ganapaty idols, thousands of tonnes of Shaadu Mati (China Clay) a very useful mineral of iddustrial importance will put at the bottom of lakes, rivers and seas. Ofcourse without festivals, our lives will be like, food without salt. But now it has become 'too much salt' Can we not have conceptual Pooja and Bhakti so that the natural resources will be used at minimal levels. Our festivals have become 'ad' oriented. Religeon lost

Tags: food, water, ofcourse

True. Of late the Ganpath pooja has become the display of fanatism rather than true devotion. More fanfare, large sizes of Ganpathi in all sorts of attire, supercharged atmosphere in which even a small spark could explode the situation to point of no return, waste of heavy Police Bundobust, sowing the seed for the hatred in the minds of brothers and sisters of other religions and a lot more. Can't we restrict the festival to be more solumn, more friendly and with real Bakthi?
