On 22nd August 2017, Arya Gurukul along with Education Today Foundation organized an “Inter-School Eco-Friendly Ganesh Making Sankalp,” the idea behind this event was to send an awareness to everyone celebrating the festival with a clear message of keeping the environment safe.
The event was attended by Teachers, Principal, and participants from over 80 students from 4 different schools in Kalyan. They came together and took a pledge to celebrate Ganesh Utsav using eco-friendly materials and colors, as many as 80 Ganpati idols were made with their own hands. After seeing the response of the eco-friendly Ganesh Utsav workshop, the Chairman of Arya Gurukul, Mr. Bharat Malik was inspired, and he sent his message to students and the masses about inculcating pollution free habits. We are one of the top school in Mumbai, and we make sure that students take part in initiatives which can make some difference in the society as well as the environment. After the idols were made, it was placed in the school’s auditorium for devotion, and later it was immersed in the school premises by creating a water body where the clay can be recycled and used in the future.
Shri. Mahesh Bankar, the chief guest of the event, spoke about how water and its surroundings get polluted after the immersion of POP Ganesh idols, for that very reason he suggested ways to curb the pollution caused aftermath. He also encouraged the use of ‘Shadu Matti’ which are eco-friendly and harmless to the environment. Arya Gurukul is one of the top school in Mumbai, and we believe in spreading awareness and doing our part that can bring about some change.
Such workshop will allow students to be motivated and celebrate other festive occasions in an eco-friendly manner which can help us conserve our environment. Mrs. Neelam Malik, the principal of Arya Gurukul, also expressed her views about noise-free and pollution free Ganpati Utsav. The event was a huge success which will surely go down the memory lane of Arya Gurukul.
