Donate a notebook and a pen - Kolhapur Ganesh Mandal appeals the devoteesA Ganesh Mandal of Kolhapur - Jay Shivray Mitra Mandal has made an appeal to the devotees to donate one notebook and one pen instead of offering any kind of prasad including flowers and money when they visit Ganesh Mandal to have darshan and offer a donation. All such notebooks and pens collected will be donated to the schools run by Zilla Parishad in the district on the last day.
The Mandal has estimated that at least 2000 notebooks and pens will be collected through their initiative and drive during the 10-day Ganesha Chaturthi festival. The Mandal has also decided to stay away from the high decibel sound system.
